Kathryn Roberts and Sean Lakeman have long established themselves as one of the UK folk scene's most rewardingly enduring partnerships.

Duos come and duos go... and some nurture and fine tune their art and watch it grow into something totally original, capitivating and award-winning.

Bonded by an unseen alchemy, Kathryn Roberts and Sean Lakeman have entwined their profressional 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 & 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 their self-penned material which reels from the bitter to the sweet, the wry to the sad, the political to the passive.

The couples intimacy and strength of passion on stage have won them many fans and an enviable reputation as 'Songwriters Par Excellence' - (FROOTS), whose greatly varied original songs cover such subjects as wicked mermaids, norwegian legends, and a lonely whale.

With a story that includes over 20 years of music making with the likes of Seth Lakeman, Cara Dillon, Levellers, Fortheringay, Kate Rusby and Show Hands, Karthyn Roberts and Sean Lakeman have consolidated themselves as pillars of Modern British Folk.

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.
