KATHRYN ROBERTS & SEAN LAKEMAN –‘On Reflection' Tour 2020 Celebrating 25 years of making music together

2020 marks 25 years of making music together for this popular wife and husband duo. Twice winners of ‘Best Duo’ BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2016, and 2013.

Kathryn Roberts and Sean Lakeman have long established themselves as one of the UK Folk scene's most rewardingly enduring partnerships.

To celebrate and acknowledge this milestone, the couple will revisit and reinterpret songs which span their career. From the early days of folk supergroup ' Equation ' through to theircurrent release 'Personae ' with a nod or two along the way to their extra-curricular musical adventures, the evening promises a whistle-stop tour through their artistic journey to date.

Articulate raconteurs, skilled musicians and innovative composers, they share stories through traditional songs and original material which reels from the bitter to the sweet, the wry to the sad, the political to the passive. This Dartmoor-based duo have fine-tuned their art into something original, captivating and totally engaging. www.kathrynrobertsandseanlakeman.com  ( photo credit Nikki Bidgood)
