Seth Lakeman to visit Lincolnshire in support of Mayflower-inspired album

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.

“If you’d never heard anything about the Mayflower and the birth of the modern USA these words and music could be your primer,” said Seth.

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.
