Kathryn Roberts and Sean Lakeman have long established themselves as one of the UK folk scene's most rewarding and enduring partnerships.

Twice recent winners of the BBC Radio 2 Folk Award for Best Duo 2016 & 2013 the couple's intimacy and strength of passion on stage have won them many fans and an enviable reputation as 'Songwriters par excellence'- (fRoots), whose greatly varied original songs cover such subjects as wicked mermaids, Norwegian legends, and a lonely whale.

Building upward from their last two highly praised albums ''Tomorrow Will Follow Today' & Hidden People,'' their 2018 release "Personae" has received brilliant reviews.

With a story that includes over 20 years of music making with the likes of Seth Lakeman, Cara Dillon, Levellers, Kate Rusby and Show of Hands, Kathryn Roberts and Sean Lakeman have consolidated themselves as pillars of modern British folk.

Support comes from Ghost School.
Ghost School is a new musical ensemble based largely around the original songs of Calderdale musician Andy Greaves (vocals, mandolin and guitar), a heavy dose of traditional material and, here and there, some very odd poetry. The band features urbane master of the guitar Les (Fez) Gillon and the talented Jen Rhiannon Trott (fiddle and vocals).

Real ale and hot food available before the gig and at the interval.
