Kathryn Roberts & Sean Lakeman
Kathryn Roberts & Sean Lakeman are proud to announce their album Tomorrow Will Follow Today, their boldest musical statement to date. After being voted 'Best Duo' in the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards in 2013, and also nominated for 'Best Original Song' (The Ballad of Andy Jacobs), in Tomorrow Will Follow Today they add two rarely covered traditional songs to eight confidently written compositions to create a superb new album.
The Roberts-Lakeman name has become synonymous with 'quality' during their musical careers which started when they were signed to a major label as teenagers. Now after nearly two decades in music, Kathryn's sublime vocals merge seamlessly with Sean's deft and inventive live guitar work on stage - and his award-winning sonic skills in the studio. In addition to his chart-topping hit records for brother Seth Lakeman, Sean has this year alone produced albums or tracks with The Levellers, Billy Bragg, Frank Turner, Imelda May and Bellowhead,as well as a string of other folk/acoustic acts.
This is a night of music that is not to be missed!
Support comes from Kitty McFarlane
Kitty Macfarlane is a 22 year old Somerset-based singer and songwriter. Her lyrics combine honest snapshots of everyday humanity with the bigger questions that have connected minds and voices for centuries, driven by her own fingerpicked guitar. Her track Bus Song was featured on BBC Radio 4 as the theme-tune for a programme by Sandi Toksvig in 2010.
Last year she was selected for the semi-final of the BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award with a formative weekend of music in Kendal, and in the summer she embarked on a collaborative songwriting residential for an emerging talent documentary with BBC Introducing in the West. Spring 2016 sees Kitty on an exciting national support tour with folk luminaries Kathryn Roberts and Sean Lakeman, and the release of her debut EP, Tide & Time.
