West Country 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 and his follow up was the gold-selling Freedom Fields which was released twice in 2006 and went on to become Seth’s first of six UK Top 40 albums.
To celebrate the 15th anniversary, Seth is embarking on a huge tour this Autumn playing the album, which includes Lady of the Sea, King and Country and White Hare, plus other favourites.
Seth says: “I’m really excited to be touring Freedom Fields for its 15th anniversary with a full band! It’s a collection of songs hugely inspired by the West Country where I still live. It’s been great revisiting some of the songs which I’ve not played live for a long time.”
Freedom Fields helped Seth build on his traditional cult following but found 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.’
