Kathryn Roberts and Sean Lakeman were voted Best Duo by the 2016 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards
Folk duo Kathryn Roberts and Sean Lakeman head out on tour next month for 12 weeks of shows in support of their new album, Saved For A Rainy Day, and they’re coming to Canterbury.
Kathryn said: “Over the last few years there have been several cover songs we have performed live and never got round to recording. Along with a couple of our own originals that didn’t ‘fit’ with our previous releases. These have often been requested on CD and, subsequently, Saved For A Rainy Day, has become a limited edition of rarities.”
2016 saw Kathryn and Sean again voted Best Duo at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards and later in the year the pair headed to India and also to Spain for shows.
Now the husband and wife team will hit the road from early March onwards to preview material that will feature on their next full album.
The pair are heading to Canterbury’s The Gulbenkian theatre on May 20.
