According to the festival blog, Sean Lakeman and Kathryn Roberts will appear as a duo for the first time in several years at the 2009 Shrewsbury Folk Festival. The duo will play on Saturday 29 August with Seth headlining the same night.

Sean and Kathryn toured folk clubs and released two albums – as well as being nominated for Best Duo at the BBC Folk Awards – between the slow demise of original band, Equation, and the burgeoning of Seth’s solo career which has since kept Sean busy with producing and guitar duties. Shrewsbury will be a rare opportunity to catch the couple on stage together again.

The duo’s two albums, 1 and 2, are still available including, amazingly for an indie production, on Spotify.
