Virtuoso fiddler, multi-instrumentalist and vocalist, Seth Lakeman is returning to Australia for a series of festival and sideshow appearances. Last Easter, his undeniably compelling and energetic live performances won him a new legion of fans on his debut Bluesfest appearance and the tour that followed.

Things move quickly for Seth, his second album, “Kitty Jay”, was nominated for the prestigious Mercury Music Prize in 2005, and his follow up album “Freedom Fields” went gold and saw him branded the ‘Poster Boy of Folk’ (much to his exasperation). But there’s so much more than the ‘poster boy’ tag allows. He’s sold over one quarter of a million records, on his latest album, “Tales from the Barrel House”, Seth has not only written all the songs for the album, but played every musical contribution himself as well as producing and mixing it in its entirety.

With 6 albums under his belt, "Tales from the Barrel House" underlines Seth’s innate knack for writing both foot-stomping, sing-along songs and more tender, thoughtful ballads. His playing is often breathtaking and Seth's trademark, soaring vocals are at the forefront of this album. As well as the cello, banjo, guitars, bouzouki and viola, there are the unusual sound effects on this album of a Salvation Army drum, clanking chains, an anvil, bellows and a railway track being thumped.

Credited with bringing his own brand of indie-folk to a whole new audience, Seth Lakeman’s talent is undeniable onstage. His charisma, energy and undeniable talent will entrance and enthral his growing army of present-day fans and, undoubtedly, captivate lovers of heartfelt music throughout Australia. Catch Seth Lakeman at festivals this Summer, at Bluesfest at Easter – and in a series of eagerly-awaited sideshows.
