It has been five years since the last offering from the popular husband and wife duo Kathryn Roberts and Sean Lakeman and their latest album Almost A Sunset proves a ‘tour de force’ of musical and lyrical surprises – a collection of thoughtful, varied songs that range from re-worked traditional ballads to the off-piste storytelling style that has become their trademark.
Recorded at Devon-pace in their studio on Dartmoor over the course of a year, the couple explore favourite characters, childhood memories and deep emotion to pull together a collection of songs that demonstrate their musical versatility, a sharp interest in the world around them and their own unique perspective on the folk genre.
Duos come and duos go, and some nurture and fine tune their art and watch it grow into something totally original and captivating. For over a quarter of a century Kathryn Roberts and Sean Lakeman‘s partnership has proved personal, permanent and pivotal. From their early days in folk supergroup Equation through to their new album this multi award-winning couple continue to exude timeless class with their exquisite brand of traditional and contemporary acoustic music.
Kathryn Roberts and Sean Lakeman are twice winners of “Best Duo’ at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards.
