Seth Lakeman takes a break from the Robert Plant musical juggernaut to release his ninth studio album ‘The Well Worn Path’. We welcome the charismatic singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist to St George’s with a new band line-up.
‘The Well Worn Path’ is 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 has brought in top producer Ben Hillier and along with long-time collaborator Ben Nicholls on upright and electric bass, and is 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’.
