Kathryn Roberts & Sean Lakeman play Milverton Music on Friday Dec 1st 2017 (click pics for more)
Kathryn Roberts A lauded singer, one of the finest of her generation, Kathryn is held in the highest regard by peers and music fans alike. An early duo career with fellow Barnsleyite Kate Rusby led to much critical acclaim and an award winning album. This partnership led swiftly to the teaming up with 3 brothers from West Devon and the band 'Equation' was born. Many years fronting the band saw Kathryn grace exotic stages all over the world, 5 years of which were spent almost exclusively in the U.S. Her relationship with Sean Lakeman flourished both personally and musically, and after a decade of relentless touring the two decided to return to their English roots and gig as an acoustic duo.
Sean Lakeman Whether on stage or in the 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. Sean learned his trade and travelled the world for a decade with folk popsters 'Equation', he then famously went on to orchestrate the sound of brother 'Seth', producing his most successful albums, garnering many awards, a wall full of gold and silver records and a top ten hit album along the way. As well as producing all Kathryn and Sean albums his production credits include some of the biggest names in British folk and folk-rock.
Tickets for our Pre-Christmas party have already sold out and no wonder with Tones music quiz, great bar, famous roasties and fantastic buffet food. Plus this year we are so pleased to bring Kathryn and Sean back to Milverton. These FOLK AWARD winners are always excellent and in our very special Milverton club it promises to be an outstanding evening. See you there.
