Geoff Lakeman is a stalwart of the west-country acoustic music scene and patriarch of a virtual “folk dynasty”. He’s the dad of acclaimed brothers Seth, Sean and Sam and father-in-law to Kathryn Roberts and Cara Dillon.
An acclaimed singer and exponent of the rare Crane duet concertina, he plays self-penned songs, English, Irish and Scots folk, “Americana” and even 20’s/30’s jazz. This year he released his debut solo album, “After All These Years” at the age of 69 and received widespread five-star reviews and radio plays.
As we’ve featured all three of the Lakeman brothers in previous festivals, we thought it only right that Dad should make an appearance. With Kathryn Roberts and Sean Lakeman already in the line-up, we’re hoping there might be a family re-union on-stage as well.
