About this event

Event info

Westcountry folk singer and multi-instrumentalist Seth Lakeman returns to the Lichfield Festival for the first time since 2017, accompanied by folk singer and musician Benji Kirkpatrick and Devon singersongwriter Alex Hart, with the trio having played a number of sold out shows together in recent years.

Seth was nominated for the Mercury Music Prize in 2005 for Kitty Jay. His thrilling solo performance of the eponymous title track on live television won him unanimous praise and started him on an incredible solo journey which has included record deals, 11 album releases (including 6 Top 40), BBC Radio 2 playlisted singles, a clutch of awards and touring all over the world. 2024 marks the 20th anniversary of the album’s release.

Seth released his latest and 11th studio album Make Your Mark in November 2021. The album features 14 powerful, brand-new songs including the singles Higher We Aspire and title track Make Your Mark which were playlisted at BBC Radio 2. Seth was also delighted to be asked in late 2022 to record on Van Morrison’s new album Moving On Skiffle which was released in March this year and he also collaborated with Public Service Broadcasting. He has previously worked and toured extensively with Robert Plant (Led Zeppelin) with his band the Sensational Space Shifters.
