When you think of folk music and the Westcountry, one name that springs to mind - Seth Lakeman. Award-winning singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, Seth has been the undisputed leader in his field since the 2005 Mercury Prize nomination for his stunning album Kitty Jay catapulted him into the forefront of the new British folk movement, followed by his gold-selling Freedom Fields in 2006.

His new album Make Your Mark, written during his enforced 18 months off the road, features 14 powerful, brand-new songs including the first single Higher We Aspire which was playlisted on BBC Radio 2.

Seth will be joined on stage by Alex Hart. If you think you’ve seen Alex at Lyme Weekend before, you have a good memory! Believe it or not, Alex was the first voice ever to be heard at our festival, when she performed with her band on the opening night of the inaugural event in 2013. Welcome back, Alex!
