“Community spirit isn’t about keeping the village clean to win the Best Kept Village competition. Community spirit is about socialising…” Tim Eades, Alstonefield, Voices from the Edge

Kathryn Roberts & Sean Lakeman (a Live & Local event)
Kathryn Roberts & Sean Lakeman are one of the most popular and respected acts on the British Folk scene, with a story that includes over 20 years of music making with the likes of Seth Lakeman, Cara Dillon, the Levellers, Kate Rusby and Show of Hands. The duo have been recognised nationally for their talents, having twice won Best Duo at the prestigious BBC Folk Awards (in 2013 and 2016). They have released a number of albums, with their last two full-length CDs, ‘Hidden People’ and ‘Tomorrow Will Follow Today’, being particularly highly praised.
Performed to the highest standard on guitar and piano, their live performances bring a feeling of inclusivity and informality whilst showcasing a variety of music from old traditional ballads to self penned ‘story songs’. The couple provide an enjoyable evening’s entertainment for all ages and living in a rural area themselves (Dartmoor) they understand the importance of bringing live entertainment to local communities.
