KATHRYN ROBERTS and SEAN LAKEMAN - Best Duo BBC Folk Awards 2013

Twin daughters and a folk-rock whirlwind forced Kathryn Roberts (vocals /piano /woodwind) and Sean Lakeman (guitar) to sideline their popular duo performances in the mid nineties. Now the timing is right for a return to form from the Dartmoor based couple. Two of the British folk scene's most accomplished performers, Kathryn and Sean have graced stages the world over in a number of guises. However, the intimacy and strength of passion shown as a duo combined with an eclectic repertoire ensures a rare treat for any listener.

Peter Knight’s Gigspanner has been hailed by Songlines magazine as 'another milestone in folk’s rebirth of cool', but those in the know will tell you that there is more to Gigspanner than meets the eye. Without doubt a bedrock of British traditional music is to be expected from Steeleye Span’s legendary fiddle player. But Gigspanner’s musical reach flirts audaciously with Eastern European, French, Cajun, African and even Aboriginal influences transporting audiences on a 'blistering pace of a musical world tour' (Phil Widdows, Folkcast).
