Seth Lakeman

Story by Jack Foley

MULTI award-winning folk singer Seth Lakeman will release his new album A Pilgrim’s Tale on February 7, 2020, in a year that marks four centuries since The Mayflower ship departed the UK.

The album will be released amidst a selection of UK concerts where Seth will visit locations significant to the Mayflower tale, including dates in London, Plymouth, Immingham and Harwich.

This stirring and beautiful record is narrated by the actor Paul McGann (Dr Who/Withnail and I, Hornblower, Luther), and features a host of guest performers including Cara Dillon, Benji Kirkpatrick, Ben Nicholls and Seth’s father Geoff Lakeman.

Released by BMG the album is available to pre-order here

To coincide with the album’s release, Seth will play live dates specially routed in a trail of towns and cities that, for various reasons, hold significance to the Mayflower journey.
