Winners of the BBC Radio 2 Folk Award for Best Duo, Kathryn Roberts & Sean Lakeman have created an enviable class act of imaginative songwriting and musicianship
Duos come and duos go, and some fine tune and nurture their art and watch it grow into something totally original and captivating and award-winning. Kathryn Roberts and Sean Lakeman have entwined their professional and personal relationship into an enviable class act of imaginative songwriting and musicianship.
The Dartmoor-based husband and wife have twice won the coveted Best Duo title at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards (2016 and 2013), consistently delivering assured, distinctive performances whether live or recorded. Over two decades of performance they have never been trapped in a groove – always bold and innovative, mixing traditional song arrangements with self-penned material which reels from the bitter to the sweet, the wry to the sad, and the political to the passive.
With ‘Personae’, Kathryn Roberts & Sean Lakeman present their landmark fifth studio album. It is an eclectic emotional see-saw of a journey, melding ten tracks of traditional ballads and their own self-penned versatile material.
