Kathryn Roberts and Sean Lakeman

In 2015 Kathryn was asked to join the iconic 70’s folk rock band Fotheringay thus stepping into the shoes of the late great Sandy Denny. She toured with the band to promote their comprehensive box set released on island records.

           Whether on stage or in the recording studio Sean Lakeman is a tour-de-force of modern folk music. As the eldest of the 3 ‘Lakeman brothers’, Sean was raised on Dartmoor and has played the guitar since the age of six. He was recognized at an early age as one of the most promising guitarists around. Sean learned his trade and travelled the world for a decade with folkpopsters ‘Equation’; he then famously went on to orchestrate the sound of his little brother ‘Seth’, producing his most successful albums and scooping many awards along the way. Whilst a member of Seth’s live touring band Sean played at the highest levels, breaking down musical boundaries and and winning over legions of music fans with a commitment and energy seldom seen from a folk band. Sean excels when working within a band or as an accompanist, and his musical services have been called upon by many other leading artists and groups. As well as producing all four Kathryn Roberts & Sean Lakeman albums his production credits include some of the biggest names in British folk and folk-rock, including Levellers, Seth Lakeman, Frank Turner, Billy Bragg, Imelda May, Bellowhead, Rev Hammer and Show of Hands.
