Folk Bands and Artists
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.
This husband and wife duo had been absent from the music scene for almost a decade before their highly-acclaimed Hidden People (2012) was released; Sean busy touring the world with brother Seth´s band whilst Kathryn remained in Devon bringing up the couple’s twin daughters. 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 seemlessly 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.
