Seth Lakeman (UK)
Singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Seth Lakeman made a series of solo albums which earned him a cult status in the English folk scene. He was nominated for a Mercury Prize and won Folk Singer Of The Year at the 2007 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards. Last year saw the release of Ballads Of The Broken Few, an acoustic album he recorded together with alt-folk trio Wildwood Kin, mixing self-penned and traditional tracks.
British folk duo Hannah Sanders and Ben Savage released their intimate and atmospheric album Before The Sun in 2016. The wonderful combination of Hannah Sanders’ clear voice and Ben Savage’s vocals and guitar play breathes new life into traditional material. Timeless beauty waiting to be discovered!
