Seth Lakeman announces spring 2012 UK tour - tickets available now/ Weds 23rd Nov
Seth Lakeman's star has been steadily rising for going on two decades. The English folk singer-songwriter has emerged from an early career with his siblings Sam and Sean (as The Lakeman Brothers), and as a perennial collaborator and guest artist, to become one of the country's top folk musicians.
Chart positions are rarely a reliable measure of 'success' but Lakeman's solo CV shows that each of his solo records has outperformed the last. His sixth album, 'Tales From the Barrel House', was released on Friday and there is every chance it will eclipse the No 17 registered by his 2010 album, 'Hearts & Minds'.
In addition to sound commercial performance, Lakeman has become something of a critics' darling. His 2005 record 'Kitty Jay' was nominated for the Mercury Music Prize and he has also collected BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards. He remains in high demand and his diary is rarely empty.
After a summer of festival appearances and putting finishing touches to the new LP, Lakeman has no sooner readied himself for a December headline tour than he is announcing another for the spring, juggled with an invite to perform with the BBC Concert Orchestra.
Seth Lakeman kicks off the 2012 tour at the Manchester Academy on 23rd February, followed by dates in York, Lincoln, Nottingham, Southsea, Bristol, Oxford, Sheffield, Cardiff and Leamington Spa. We have tickets for all dates available now, except Oxford (on sale Weds), all priced £18. Note: it is very likely extra spring dates will be added, so keep checking back!
In addition, Seth is playing at the Party at the Pavilions in Plymouth on 3rd March with the BBC Concert Orchestra. Tickets are available now, priced just a tenner from the Pavilions' website.
Seth Lakeman's autumn tour takes place throughout December, with the final date at the Falmouth's Princess Pavilions (he loves a pavilion). We also have 2011 tour tickets available now, priced £17 to £22.50.
