Seth Lakeman @ Rough Trade East

Seth Lakeman @ Rough Trade East | Music for a London Life | Scoop.it

wednesday

feb 5

1pm

 

Recorded this summer in a studio set-up in a Cornish church, 'Word Of Mouth' is a defining album for Seth Lakeman's storied career and for the landscape of British folk. It keeps the stripped-back storytelling but embellishes it with a denser, fuller version of Seth's hauntingly melodic style. Seth has bared his traditional folk roots more than ever before with 'Word Of Mouth'. The sound is deeper and more dramatic than previous albums, in part owing to Seth's recruitment of his live band: As well as Ben Nicholls, Cormac Byrne, Lisbee Stainton and Sean Lakeman, guests on the album include Leon Hunt playing banjo on 'Last Rider', cellist India Bourne on 'The Wanderer' and 'Lau' accordion player Martin Green on 'Tiger'.


Recorded in North Tamerton Church in East Cornwall and featuring the stories of the real people who inspired the album, 'Word of Mouth' straddles the folk tradition Seth's music is steeped in and the contemporary folk movement that he has become such a seminal figure of. Seth Lakeman has been at the forefront of the re-emergence of British folk, its escape from the dark shadow of bearded men in Fair Isle jumpers into a new light for energetic, heartfelt musicians and a rediscovered respect for acoustic music. 'Word Of Mouth' shows Seth continuing to lead the way.

Isabel Anderson @ Twickfolk

Isabel Anderson @ Twickfolk | Music for a London Life | Scoop.it

"Isobel’s music weaves a lyrical landscape, teetering on the darker side of life with the gentle lilt of British Folk influences, soft crooner lullabies and soulful climaxes. 

 

In 2010 Isobel released her intimate debut album Cold Water Songs, receiving high praise and airplay from BBC Radio 3′s Late Junction and BBC Radio Ulster.

 

This was followed by her 2011 album Dark Path, which was featured on Radio 2 by Jamie Cullum and in The Guardian’s Music podcast. Her third album will be released later this year.

 

 

Of Isobel’s 2011 album, Jamie Cullum said on his Radio 2 programme: “As I go through the pile of CDs I receive every week sometimes you come across something really special. I love this record… Real effortless simplicity. Dark Path is a great album”.  

Ursula O'Reilly Traynor's insight:

I first heard Jake @ St Pancras Sessions, now sadly no more.

I bought his music and every time I hear him, I want more!

I met him briefly at that St Pancras gig ..What a friendly guy behind such a big expressive voice,  He is genuinely appreciative when people like his music.  With this attitude and this talent, it's no wonder he is travelling fast and far with his songwriting.

 

Congrats Jake! Continue to soar!

 

(Keep us posted on those live gigs.

I really want to be there at the next one.)
