In October this year folk-inspired, multi-award winning singer-songwriter Seth Lakeman will be touring the UK with his hugely talented band, plus special guest Lisbee Stainton, and will visit Shetland to play a special gig in Mareel on 10 October, presented by Shetland Arts.
Seth has released six albums including 2005’s Mercury-nominated Kitty Jay through to his latest album, Tales from the Barrel House, which confirms Seth’s innate knack for writing both foot-stomping, sing-along songs and more tender, thoughtful ballads.
His fiddle and tenor guitar playing is often breathtaking and Seth's trademark, soaring vocals are at the forefront of the album and his live performances, as beguiling and haunting as ever.
Seth and the band will be playing tracks from all his previous studio albums plus a few brand new songs on the Autumn tour.
Seth LakemanShetland Arts’ Marketing Officer, Lisa Ward, said: “Shetland Arts is proud to get to present such a talented artist at a live performance in Mareel. Tickets are already selling well, and we’re sure he and his band are going to provide a concert to remember.”
The concert is on Thursday 10 October, doors at 7pm, start at 7.30pm. Tickets cost £20 and are available now from Shetland Box Office in Mareel & Islesburgh, over the phone on 01595 745 555, or online here.
