An award-winning folk duo will be performing an intimate house concert, as part of a current tour to promote their new album.

Talented twosome Kathryn Roberts and Sean Lakeman are set to appear at St Cuthbert’s House, in Seahouses, on Easter Monday, April 6.

The gig will showcase their new album, Tomorrow Will Follow Today, which is their boldest musical statement to date.

This renowned husband and wife double act were voted Best Duo in the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards in 2013, while The Ballad of Andy Jacobs was nominated for Best Original Song.

The pair have been in music for nearly two decades. Kathryn’s sublime vocals merge seamlessly with Sean’s deft and inventive live guitar work on stage, and his award-winning sonic skills in the studio.

In addition to his chart-topping hit records for brother Seth, Sean has produced albums or tracks with The Levellers, Billy Bragg, Frank Turner, Imelda May and Bellowhead, as well as a string of other folk and acoustic acts.

Kathryn and Sean will be supported in Seahouses by Hattie Briggs.

Hattie is a Gloucestershire-based singer-songwriter and was a nominee in the BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Awards 2014.

The 21-year-old quit Oxford University in the second year of her Russian degree to concentrate on her musical career in January 2014, and has featured in a documentary about emerging talent.

Since then, her music has been played on television and radio and she is set to release her debut album, Red & Gold, on April 6, as well as the single, A Beautiful Mind, on the same day.

Tickets are priced £12.50 and are available by calling 01665 720456. Doors open at 7pm for pre-concert drinks from the bar. Music starts around 7.45pm.
