Seth Lakeman, the multi award-winning folk singer-songwriter, is bringing his upcoming tour to several key Lincolnshire locations next year, marking four centuries since The Mayflower ship departed the UK.
A Pilgrim’s Tale will be released amidst a selection of UK concerts where Seth will visit locations significant to the Mayflower tale, including Immingham, Gainsborough and Boston.
The record is narrated by the actor Doctor Who and Withnail & I actor Paul McGann and features a host of guest performers including Cara Dillon, Benji Kirkpatrick, Ben Nicholls and Seth’s father Geoff.
To coincide with the album’s release, Seth will play live dates specially routed in a trail of towns and cities that, for various reasons, hold significance to the Mayflower journey.
Locations such as Immingham – where Separatists made a dangerous escape from England to Holland in their search for religious freedom – and Dartmouth – where the ship was anchored for repairs – will be visited in this expansive tour.
The tour stops off in Immingham’s St Andrew Church on Thursday 6 February, Gainsborough’s Trinity Arts Centre on Saturday 8 February and Boston’s Blackfriars Theatre and Arts Centre on Sunday 9 February.
