Chippenham Folk Festival had hoped to welcome Kathryn and Sean to the 2020 Festival. Sadly with world events it was not to be. So we are delighted that they have agreed to be one of our headliners at the joint online 2021 Chester and Chippenham festival.
Kathryn & Sean are a popular, distinctive modern folk duo based in Dartmoor. They are bold and innovative, mixing traditional song arrangements with their self-penned material. Their sound reels from the bitter to the sweet, the wry to the sad, the political to the passive. They have twice won ‘Best Duo’ at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards (2013 & 2016).
Last year marked 25 years of making music together for this popular wife and husband duo. To celebrate their milestone they revisited and reinterpreted songs that span their career, from the early days of folk supergroup ‘Equation’ through to the current release ‘Personae ‘.
For a taste of their music see the beautiful performance of A Song To Live By below. To find out more about the duo and to keep up with all their news be sure to check out their Facebook page at @kathrynrobertsandseanlakeman .
Karthyn & Sean will be headlining at the festival on Friday 28th May.
