plus support from local singer, Holly Clarke.

Westcountry folk singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Seth Lakeman unearthed hidden histories and unsung everyday heroes to commemorate in song from in and around his native Devon and Cornwall for his latest album ‘Word of Mouth’ released in February 2014. Recorded in a church in East Cornwall and featuring the stories of the real people who inspired it, the added guest instrumentalists give depth, drama and wings to songs where working lives, majestic landscapes, the tragedy of war, the price of revolution and more are brought to life.

Seth’s previous albums include the Mercury Music Prize nominated ‘Kitty Jay’ (2005) and the gold-selling ‘Freedom Fields’ (2006) which featured the hit singles Lady of the Sea and The White Hare.

Seth has performed everywhere from Libya to Australia to Texas over the years, as well as featuring on just about every major festival bill across the UK. In addition, he has toured extensively around Europe too where he’s also performed with others including Tori Amos and Clannad. In 2013 amidst a hectic summer of festival appearances, recording the new album and the birth of his twins he flew to New York to meet Izzy Young for a BBC Radio 4 special called ‘The Folklorist’.  

He also played a number of live dates in 2013 as part of The Full English project. The first single from Seth's Word of Mouth album ‘Portrait Of My Wife’ also features on ‘The Full English’ album which won Best Album at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards in 2014. His diary for 2014 was as busy as last year with festivals and shows throughout the summer including a date at London’s Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre and a then an extensive UK tour in October.
