Saturday 27 October 2012 Download Calendar


Folk-inspired, multi-award winning singer/songwriter, Seth Lakeman has announced a 16 date UK tour in October with his band at venues and theatres around the UK including a date at London’s Cadogan Hall on 13 October and finishing at the Theatre Royal Plymouth on the 27 October.

Seth re-released his album Tales from the Barrel House in April 2012 to meet demand after the original limited edition release sold out before Christmas. Recorded at Morwellham Quay in Devon, Tales from the Barrel House underlines Seth’s inate knack for writing both foot-stomping, sing-along songs and more tender, thoughtful ballads. His playing is often breathtaking and Seth’s trademark, soaring vocals are at the forefront of this album, as beguiling and haunting as ever.

2012 has already seen Seth perform at the prestigious BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards and with the BBC Concert Orchestra in March as part of the Music Nation weekend. He tours to Europe and Australia in April and May, before a packed summer of festival appearances including at the Cambridge Folk Festival.

Seth will be playing tracks from his previous studio albums plus brand new songs from ‘Tales From The Barrel House’ at live dates in 2012.
