What people are saying about Seth Lakeman
Rated 5 out of 5 by JonathonC from A great twist on an established format This must be the sixth (maybe seventh) time we've seen Mr Lakeman and he has never failed to amaze and have us leaving with a smile. With the new slimmed down format he packed a very different sound but the counterpoint of three beautiful close harmonies, light percussion and his voice / instrumental - just worked so well. Disappointing not to hear some of the favourites but always like hearing the song written for the Penlee Lifeboat disaster and pleased to hear of his forthcoming support for that worthy cause. Went to the concert, already had the CD, left with a huge smile. Job done - thanks Seth.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ClareR73 from The best I've seen Seth Lakeman and Co. play!! This was the first time that I had been to the Live Rooms in Chester, and I'm hoping it won't be the last! A great, smaller venue, with really friendly staff. It's a great size to see a band, too, because wherever you are standing, you're really close to the stage. The sound was great, too. Seth Lakeman was phenomenal! He had said near the beginning of the gig that this was the first time in quite a while that he had done a standing only show, and he really played to that - lots of danceable songs (as well as some slower, beautiful songs too!). Loads off the last album 'Word of Mouth' but loads of the older stuff too (and an excellent rendition of Kitty Jay). I do hope he comes back to Chester soon!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by SammyC1 from Seth Lakeman doesn't disapoint Although we had to wait outside until a technical fault was fixed (which was a bit cold) once we got in we were not disappointed. Wildwood Kin get better and better- their set was excellent, and Seth himself was amazing. He played a mix of new and older material with some being ballads and some to get us dancing. Standing up through the performance was not an issue and bring closer to him meant we really got a great view of the band. The more intimate venue really makes a difference to the experience. Loved it - definitely will go again!
