Fresh from his whirlwind world tour with rock legend Robert Plant the charismatic performer is playing a headline show in support of his stunning, ninth solo album The Well-Worn Path.

The charismatic singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist found time at the beginning of the year, in between charging around the globe with Robert Plant and his band, the Sensational Space Shifters, to record a new studio album.

It’s a return to a no-nonsense, organic, classic folk-rock approach with hints of Fairport Convention, Neil Young, Nick Cave and Billy Bragg - plus Lakeman’s trademark foot-stomping, fiddle bow-shredding and soaring vocals. Seth brought in top producer Ben Hillier and along with long-time collaborator Ben Nicholls on upright and electric bass, he was joined by new boys Kit Hawes on electric and acoustic guitar and drummer Evan Jenkins.

BBC Radio 2 Folk Award winner Seth Lakeman’s previous albums include Mercury Prize nominated ‘Kitty Jay’ and the gold-selling ‘Freedom Fields’.


Supporting Act, Josienne Clarke

Supporting Seth Lakeman is solo act, Josienne Clarke. With an elegant, nuanced and emotionally affecting singing style, Josienne has frequently been compared to the great Sandy Denny, but present too are elements of Nina Simone and Gillian Welch; all three are important influences on her work.

In the last two years, Josienne has supported the great Richard Thompson on a dream-come-true tour of the UK and opened for the legendary Robert Plant across Europe. The summer of 2018 saw her perform at some of the UK’s best-loved festivals, including Latitude, Larmer Tree and End Of The Road. She even found herself in demand as a writer and broadcaster, contributing to Standard Issue magazine and appearing on BBC Radio 3’s The Verb to discuss her pet subject melancholy, alongside poet Simon Armitage.

Tickets on sale from Friday 26 October via Gigantic.
