Seth Lakeman is a West Country born singer-songwriter, credited with bringing folk music to a whole new audience, since his 2005 Mercury nominated debut Kitty Jay.
Seth’s live show, as with everything else he does, takes the established folk orthodoxy and turns it on its head. The spirit of the rock band meets the timeless and heartfelt subject matter of the folk tale in a blur of fiddle, acoustic guitar and foot-stomping rhythms, with Seth’s unmistakable vocals riding the wave.
Having taken the leap of signing to a major label off the back of his self-financed debut, Seth’s second album, Freedom Fields, sold over 100,000 copies following its release in 2006.
Seth’s third album Poor Man’s Heaven perfectly captures the raw, rhythmic energy of his live shows.
