Grayshott Folk Club introduces:
Kathryn Roberts & Sean Lakeman www.kathrynrobertsandseanlakeman.com/
Some gigs come together very quickly, others take considerably longer to organise and agree. We've waited several years for the right moment but now we are delighted to finally be welcoming Kathryn Roberts & Sean Lakeman to Grayshott Folk Club.
This popular, multi award-winning husband and wife duo exude timeless class with their exquisite brand of traditional and contemporary music.
Duos come and duos go… and some nurture and fine tune their art and watch it grow into something totally original and captivating. For over a quarter of a century Kathryn Roberts and Sean Lakeman’s partnership has proved personal, permanent and pivotal.
From early days in folk super group 'Equation' through to their most recent work, acclaimed as ‘Their best yet’, with a nod or two along the way to their extra-curricular musical adventures, the evening promises a whistle-stop tour through their artistic journey to date.

Kathryn Roberts & Sean Lakeman
Two of the British folk scenes most accomplished performers, Kathryn and Sean have graced stages the world over in a number of guises, however, the intimacy and strength of passion shown as a duo, combined with an eclectic repertoire ensures a rare treat for any listener. 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 seamlessly 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.
