Kathryn ~ "one of the best voices on the scene" (Mike Harding - BBC Radio 2 - Nov 21 2001)

Kathryn and Sean from the folk-rock crossover band Equation return to their roots, it is sure to be a memorable experience for those lucky enough to witness these special shows in small folk clubs such as The Heart Of Lincolnshire Club.

It is long overdue that Kathryn Roberts returns to her roots as a folk singer of the highest calibre. Not since her renowned award winning partnership with Kate Rusby has Kathryn focused on the folk clubs that nurtured her musical career. Now with fellow 'Equation' member guitarist Sean Lakeman she hopes to re-capture the inspiring rapport that exists between performer and audience in the intimate folk club setting. With an eclectic repertoire of traditional songs alongside favourites from the likes of Randy Newman and Suzanne Vega, Kathryn and Sean wear their roots and influences proudly on their sleeves.

As the lead singer for the well-known Folk-Rock Crossover band 'Equation', Kathryn has toured the world with the group and continues to play to packed houses from Los Angeles to Lisbon. Her commitments with Equation mean that opportunities for folk club appearances are limited, but playing the clubs is something that is close to her heart, and we are delighted that one of the club's she will be appearing at is The Heart Of Lincolnshire club.

Sean shares her affection as his early career was also launched upon the folk club circuit, both as an accompanist to geordie fiddle favourite Tom McConville and with his two siblings as 'The Lakeman Brothers'.

The duo debuted their 'folk' set at the Holmfirth Folk Festival and at the Loughborough Folk Club where their roof rattling live performances were laced with a selection of fiery traditional songs and covers of songs written by some of the greatest singer-songwriters. Make sure you save a little of your Christmas money because its rumoured that Kathryn and Sean will record a 'limited run' CD to accompany their Winter tour.
