The Convent write: “Kathryn Roberts & Sean Lakeman are proud to announce their album ‘Tomorrow Will Follow Today’, their boldest musical statement to date. After being voted “Best Duo” in the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards in 2013, and also nominated for “Best Original Song” (The Ballad of Andy Jacobs), in ‘Tomorrow Will Follow Today’ they add two rarely covered traditional songs to eight confidently written compositions to create a superb new album. This husband and wife duo had been absent from the music scene for almost a decade before their highly-acclaimed ‘Hidden People’ CD (2012) was released; Sean busy touring the world with brother Seth’s band whilst Kathryn remained in Devon bringing up the couple’s twin daughters.

“The Roberts-Lakeman name has become synonymous with “quality” during their musical careers which started when they were signed to a major label as teenagers. Now after nearly two decades in music, Kathryn’s sublime vocals merge seamlessly with Sean’s deft and inventive live guitar work on stage – and his award-winning sonic skills in the studio. In addition to his chart-topping hit records for brother Seth Lakeman, Sean has this year alone produced albums or tracks with The Levellers, Billy Bragg, Frank Turner, Imelda May and Bellowhead… as well as a string of other folk/acoustic acts.

“Sean and Kathryn’s support act, is local singer-songwriter and BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award Nominee Hattie Briggs. Hattie released her debut EP ‘My Shepherd’s Hut’ in November 2013, and has subsequently had 3 singles in the iTunes singer-songwriter chart, including ‘Pull Me Down’ that reached number 19, and ’Old Eyes’, that features jazz musician Alec Dankworth. Key live performances include the BBC Introducing stage at Wychwood Festival and supports with the likes of Seth Lakeman and Sam Brookes. She was also a featured artist in an emerging talent documentary by BBC Introducing In The West”.
