Kathryn Roberts & Sean Lakeman is an British folk duo comprising two of the British folk scene's most accomplished performers. Both Kathryn Roberts (vocals, piano, woodwind) and Sean Lakeman (guitar) have each graced stages the world over in a number of guises. The intimacy and strength of passion shown as a duo, combined with an eclectic repertoire, ensures a rare treat for any listener.
In the mid 2000s, the arrival of twin daughters and a folk-rock whirlwind resulted in the duo curtailing their duo performances. In 2012, after almost a decade, they made a spectacular return in conjunction with their critically acclaimed album ‘Hidden People’. Awards and much praise followed and the couple re-established themselves as one of the top British folk duos.
With a story that includes music making with the likes of Seth Lakeman, Cara Dillon, Levellers, Kate Rusby and Show of Hands, Roberts & Lakeman have consolidated themselves as pillars of modern British folk.
