As part of Independent Venue Week we are pleased to host Seth Lakeman accompanied by Benji Kirkpatrick.

Seth Lakeman

Charismatic singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Seth Lakeman has announced a solo tour around the release of his new studio album Make Your Mark. Written during his enforced 18 months off the road, the album features 14 powerful, brand-new songs including the BBC Radio 2 playlisted single Higher We Aspire.

Seth has been making his mark since he was nominated for the Mercury Music Prize in 2005 for Kitty Jay. As well as the new studio album, he celebrated the 15th anniversary of his gold-selling Freedom Fields album in 2021 with a deluxe reissue on CD & vinyl. The Freedom Fields Deluxe Reissue is being released on CD, double vinyl - Limited Edition, coloured and black – all with exclusive bonus content including unreleased tracks and rare demos. Freedom Fields includes favourites Lady of the Sea, King and Country and White Hare.


With support from...

Benji Kirkpatrick

Benji Kirkpatrick is well known as a rhythmic driver of such outfits as Bellowhead and Faustus, with his "memorably aggressive" (MOJO) style. He started working as a soloist early on in his career though and now brings his focus back to that.
