Seth Lakeman

Raised in a musical family, Lakeman has played a pivotal role in the resurgence of folk music’s popularity in the early 21st century.

Seth Lakeman’s solo career gained momentum with his debut album, “The Punch Bowl,” in 2002. However, it was his fourth studio album, “Kitty Jay” (2004), that brought him widespread recognition and critical acclaim. The album was Mercury Prize-nominated, elevating Lakeman’s status as a leading figure in contemporary folk music.

Known for his masterful fiddle playing, expressive vocals, and storytelling songwriting, Lakeman has continued to release successful albums, including “Freedom Fields” (2006), “Poor Man’s Heaven” (2008), and “Ballads of the Broken Few” (2016). His work often draws inspiration from his West Country roots and the rich tradition of English folk music.
