Seth Lakeman @ September Festival 2011
Celebrated folk singer-songwriter and virtuoso fiddler Seth Lakeman releases single Portrait Of My Wife in October from his forthcoming new album ‘Word Of Mouth’ due for release in February 2014. Seth has released six albums to date including 2005’s Mercury-nominated Kitty Jay and the gold-selling Freedom Fields.
Seth had a hectic summer in 2013, including festival appearances around the UK and in Europe in between recording a new album. Also a trip to New York to meet Izzy Young for a BBC R4 special on 10 August, called ‘The Folklorist’. He is on tour through October at theatres and venues around the UK. Seth will be joined by his band including Sean, Ben and Cormac plus special guest Lisbee Stainton on all dates. He will be playing tracks from his forthcoming new album ‘Word of Mouth’ plus other live favourites.
Seth has also found time this year to be part of The Full English – a groundbreaking project (sponsored by the English Folk Dance and Song Society) that draws together for the first time the early 20th century folksong collections. The result is the most comprehensive database of British folk songs, tunes, dances and customs in the world. Artists featured live and on record, for The Full English include Seth Lakeman, Martin Simpson, Fay Hield, Nancy Kerr, Sam Sweeney, Rob Harbron as well as Jon Boden’s Remnant Kings.
