The Full English Project: Concert: Seth Lakeman + Martin Simpson + Fay Hield + Nancy Kerr
Celebrating The Full English – the world’s biggest free digital archive of traditional English folk and dance music. Folk singer Hield has trawled The Full English collection, creating new work and arrangements that will be performed live at this celebratory event.
'The musical equivalent of the bodice-ripping blockbuster' - The Guardian. Seth's live show, as with everything else he does, takes the established folk orthodoxy and turns it on its head. The spirit of the rock band meets the timeless and heartfelt subject matter of the folk tale in a blur of fiddle, acoustic guitar and foot-stomping rhythms, with Seth's unmistakable vocals riding the wave.

Widely acknowledged as one of the finest acoustic and slide guitar players in the world, Martin Simpson's interpretations of traditional songs are masterpieces of storytelling. His solo shows are intense, eclectic, spellbinding and deeply moving. His own song writing has produced some real gems, from the truck-stop epic Love Never Dies, to the profoundly moving Never Any Good. His career includes collaborations on stage and record with June Tabor, Kelly Joe Phelps, Jackson Browne, Danú, Martin Carthy, Cara Dillon and many more. Simpson is a very regular nominee in the BBC Folk Awards and received Musician of the Year in 2002 and 2005.

She released her first solo album in September 2010 entitled ‘Looking Glass’ to widespread critical acclaim. Her much anticipated new album, released in the Spring 2012, looks set to further increase her reputation as one of the country's leading folk artists.
