Kathryn Roberts & Sean Lakeman

kr sl 1.jpg

Kathryn Roberts & Sean Lakeman have long established themselves as one of the British folk scene’s most rewardingly enduring partnerships. 


Duos come and duos go... and some nurture and fine tune their art and watch it grow into something totally original, captivating and award-winning. Bonded by an unseen alchemy, Kathryn Roberts & Sean Lakeman have entwined their professional and personal relationship into an enviable class act of imaginative songwriting and musicianship.

The Dartmoor-based husband and wife have twice won the coveted 'Best Duo' title at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, as well as  ‘Best Duo’ at the Awards and Spiral Earth Awards. They consistently deliver assured, distinctive performances whether live or recorded. In over two decades of performance they have never been trapped in a groove – always bold and innovative, mixing traditional song arrangements with their self-penned material which reels from the bitter to the sweet, the wry to the sad, the political to the passive.
