Kathryn Roberts and Sean Lakeman

Exquisite talents

Kathryn and Sean form a superbly polished duo of immeasurably exquisite talents. Sean, in typical Lakeman style, is not content simply to play his guitars – he strives to extract every last ounce of passion and drama. Similarly, Kathryn is meticulous in her expressive singing and keyboard accompaniments. Current holders of the BBC Radio 2 Folk Award for best duo, they have just released an EP featuring their own songs, plus some interesting covers of tracks by songwriters including Bruce Springsteen, Warren Zevon and Tim O’Brien.
