Geoff Lakeman

Geoff Lakeman



A Cornishman who has lived on Dartmoor for 40 years, has been described as “ A stalwart of the West Country Folk scene and the father of a virtual folk dynasty.“

He´s the dad of Sean, Sam and Seth Lakeman, who are all internationally renowned folk musicians.They began playing as children in a family band with Geoff and their violinist mum, Joy.

Geoff is a leading exponent of the rare Crane Duet concertina. He performs self-written and West Country songs, English, Irish and Scottish folk and other music as varied as Jimmie Rodgers,the Louvin Brothers, Richard Thompson and Randy Newman. He´s also one of the few to play 1920´s/ 30´s jazz on an authentic 1920´s instrument.

His smooth tenor vocals and unique concertina accompaniment have won him plaudits and fans over the years but it has only been since retiring from a long career as a Fleet Street Journalist that Geoff has truly spread his wings musically.

2017 sees the release of Geoff´s debut album ´After All These Years´. With a stellar line up of musical family and friends it showcases his talents perfectly and illustrates the high regard and affection in which he is held.
