Seth Lakeman at the Cheese & Grain

Taking a break from the Robert Plant musical juggernaut this autumn, Seth Lakeman is releasing his ninth studio album ‘The Well Worn Path’ and heads out on tour around the UK with a new band line-up, coming to the Cheese & Grain later this month.

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 his new studio album ‘The Well Worn Path’.

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. One of the finest female folk voices Kathryn Roberts (Seth’s sister-in-law) also contributes sublime backing vocals to the album.

Seth plays at the Cheese & Grain on Thursday 22nd November. For more information and tickets visit: www.cheeseandgrain.com
