To celebrate the 15th anniversary, internationally renowned folk artist Seth Lakeman will be playing a worldwide concert stream with his band. The celebration will focus on the best-selling Folk album of all time (in the UK), including ‘Lady of the Sea’, ‘King and Country’ and ‘White Hare’ plus other favourites.
Westcountry folk singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Seth Lakeman was nominated for the Mercury Music Prize in 2005 for ‘Kitty Jay’. It catapulted Lakeman into the forefront of the new British folk movement. His follow up, the gold-selling ‘Freedom Fields’ produced by his brother, was released twice in 2006 with huge success and went on to become Seth’s first 6 UK Top 40 albums.
“I’m really excited to be able to share the whole Freedom Fields album for its 15th anniversary! It’s a collection of songs hugely inspired by the Westcountry and it still seems to be the most popular album I’ve recorded so far. This is going to be pretty special. I hope you can tune in to watch!” – Seth
Freedom Fields helped Seth build on his traditional cult following whilst also finding him a whole new audience for his rhythmic, captivating brand of indie-folk song writing. He was named Folk Singer of the Year, and ‘Freedom Fields’ awarded Album Of The Year at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards in 2007.
“Delicious harmonies and the occasional fiery fiddle are the order of the day, with his impressive song-writing skills shining out of every tune.” BBC Music (Freedom Fields)
