We’re delighted to welcome back Kathryn Roberts and Sean Lakeman for their second appearance at the Costa del Folk.
Last with us in Spain in 2015, Kathryn and Sean have since established their position as one of the most acclaimed and enduring partnerships on the folk scene with a second BBC Award as Britain’s Best Duo.
The couple’s intimacy and strength of passion on stage have won them countless fans and an enviable reputation as ‘Songwriters par excellence’- (fRoots), whose greatly varied original songs cover such subjects as wicked mermaids, Norwegian legends, and a lonely whale.
Building upward from their last two highly praised albums ‘‘Tomorrow Will Follow Today’ & Hidden People’’ fans of folk and acoustic music can only wonder where this leading couple will choose to turn next.
With a story that includes over 20 years of music making with the likes of Seth Lakeman, Cara Dillon, Levellers, Kate Rusby and Show of Hands, Kathryn Roberts and Sean Lakeman have consolidated themselves as pillars of modern British folk.
