Seth’s interview on the Mike Harding Show is available via Listen Again (iPlayer) » or by downloading the Podcast (MP3) ». Listen again is available until 16 July, the podcast until about 6 Aug 2008.

The Times made it it’s ‘Radio Choice’ for the day:

Seth Lakeman is the closest folk music has to a pop star. He even sings like one – take away that rhythmic violin and the story ballads he does so well and he’d slide easily into any chart band. He’s even had hit records (Top 30, granted, but that’s better than nothing), as well as a Mercury Music Prize nomination. And his appeal is growing – his recently released album Poor Man’s Heaven, was No. 1 in Amazon’s pre-order chart! From the songs that stud his interview with Harding it appears that Lakeman is embarking on a rockier road, however much he may deny it, skirting agreeably into Fairport Convention and even Traffic territory, which is no bad thing. Hear the interview, buy the record. It’s easy.
