Kathryn Roberts & Sean Lakeman

Text Box: Twice recent winners of the BBC Radio 2 Folk Award for Best Duo, in 2016 and 2013, and of Spiral Earth Award for Best Duo in 2015, this couple's intimacy and strength of passion have won many fans and an enviable reputation as 'songwriters par excellence'. Their greatly varied original songs cover such subjects as wicked mermaids, Norwegian legends and a lonely whale. Kathryn hails from the South Yorkshire mining town of Barnsley and was asked to team up with the iconic '70s folk rock band 'Fotheringay' in 2015, thus stepping into the shoes of the late great Sandy Denny. Sean  the eldest of the three Lakeman brothers, is a tour-de-force of modern folk music with fantastic guitar riffs accompanying Kathryn's vocals producing a feast for the listener.
