One of the UK folk scene’s most enduring and best loved partnerships are performing in Lincoln next month.

2020 marks twenty-five years of making music together for husband and wife duo, Sean Lakeman and Kathryn Roberts.

To celebrate this milestone, the couple are revisiting and reinterpreting songs which span their entire career. From the early days of the folk supergroup Equation through to their current release Personae 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.

Articulate raconteurs, skilled musicians and innovative composers, they share stories through traditional songs and original material which reels from the bitter to the sweet, the wry to the sad, the political to the passive. This Dartmoor-based duo have fine-tuned their art into something original, captivating and totally engaging.

Kathryn and Sean (brother of fellow folk singer, Seth Lakeman) play Lincoln Performing Arts Centre on Saturday March 7.
