Folk tour of the week: Kathryn Roberts & Sean Lakeman, various venues
Saturday 10 November 2012
The husband-and-wife duo's first album in a decade, Hidden People (Navigator), came out this May, featuring original, story-rich ballads and folk-rock songs.
The Barnsley-born Roberts' beautiful voice was first heard with Kate Rusby on their 1995 album, and she and Lakeman put out two albums in the mid-2000s before child-raising, plus Lakeman's production and guitar duties for the Levellers and his brother Seth, put a pause to their music.
Roberts returned to work with last year's excellent Cecil Sharp Project, alongside Caroline Herring, Jackie Oates, and Jim Moray, and they will tour until the beginning of December. It's great to have them back.
