Husband and wife team Kathryn Roberts and Sean Lakeman arrive at Square Chapel on April 7 as part of a string of gigs in support of their new ‘mini-album’, entitled Saved For A Rainy Day.

“Over the years there have been several cover songs we have performed live and never got round to recording, along with a couple of original songs that didn’t fit with our previous full releases. These have often been requested on CD and, subsequently, ‘ Saved For A Rainy Day ‘ has become a limited edition of rarities.It will only be available at our live gigs,” says Sean.

This is guaranteed to be a cracking gig from a talented duo who have been nominated for this year’s BBC Folk Awards for Best Duo ( having previously won in 2013 ).

Such is their appeal MOJO wrote “As a guitarist, producer and co-songwriter Sean Lakeman is one of the unsing heroes of modern British Folk.”

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.

The concert takes place on Thursday, April 7 at 8pm.

Tickets cost £12 and £10 for concessions. They can be bought from 01422 349422 or via the Square Chapel website info@squarechapel.co.uk
