FOLK inspired multi-award winning singer songwriter Seth Lakeman has announced a 16 date UK tour including Buxton Opera House on Tuesday, October 23, 7.30pm.

Seth re-released his album Tales from the Barrel House in April to meet demand after the original limited edition release sold out.

Recorded at Morwellham Quay in Devon, Tales from the Barrel House underlines Seth’s inate knack for writing both foot-stomping, sing-along songs and more tender, thoughtful ballads.

His playing is breathtaking and Seth’s trademark, soaring vocals are at the forefront of this album, as beguiling and haunting as ever.

Having come to wider public attention following his Mercury nominated Kitty Jay album in 2005, when Seth brought folk music to a new, younger audience, he has been widely credited with breaking down perceptions and barriers often associated with folk music and its acceptance (or lack of it) in the mainstream.

2012 has seen Seth perform at the prestigious BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards and with the BBC Concert Orchestra in March as part of the Music Nation weekend. His packed summer of festival appearances included an appearance at the Cambridge Folk Festival.

Seth will be playing tracks from his previous studio albums plus brand new songs from Tales From The Barrel House at live dates in 2012.
