Celebrated folk-inspired singer-songwriter and virtuoso fiddler Seth Lakeman has released six albums including 2005’s Mercury-nominated Kitty Jayand 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 this album, as beguiling and haunting as ever.

Recorded at Morwellham Quay in Devon, Seth released ‘Tales From the Barrel House’ in April 2012. He has not only written, sung and played all the instruments on every track but he’s also recorded and mixed the whole album himself. Seth says he has enjoyed this recording project like no other.  “I’ve been really keen for some time to get right back to the basics of ‘Kitty Jay’… ” (the £300 kitchen-table album that shot him to fame and won him a Mercury Music Prize nomination back in 2005).
