Seth Lakeman announces Word of Mouth October tour (2014)
Story by Jack Foley
FOLK singer, songwriter and virtuoso fiddler Seth Lakeman has announced plans for a full UK tour in October 2014 in support of his new album, Word of Mouth.
Seth will be joined by his multi-instrumental band, playing songs from Word of Mouth and other live favourites.
Recorded in North Tamerton Church in Cornwall, Word of Mouth straddles the folk tradition his music is steeped in and the contemporary folk movement that he has become such a seminal figure of.
Seth has successfully helped to steer English folk into the musical mainstream with his high-energy performances and a series of best-selling albums over the last 10 years since he released the Mercury Prize nominated Kitty Jay in 2004.
