STAR of the English folk scene, award-winning singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Seth Lakeman, is returning to Inverness next May.

The West Country musician has previously appeared at the Belladrum Festival and The Ironworks, and returns to The Ironworks on Thursday 21st May.

Lakeman’s albums include the Mercury Music Prize nominated Kitty Jay and the gold-selling Freedom Fields.

For his latest album, Word of Mouth, released earlier this year, Lakeman unearthed hidden histories and unsung everyday heroes to commemorate in song from in and around his native Devon and Cornwall and recorded the album in a church in east Cornwall.

Performed everywhere from Libya to Australia to Texas over the years, Lakeman also has toured extensively around Europe too where he has also performed with others including Tori Amos and Clannad. In 2013, amidst a hectic summer of festival appearances, recording the new album and the birth of his twins, he flew to New York to meet Izzy Young for a BBC Radio 4 special called The Folklorist. He also played a number of live dates in 2013 as part of all star band The Full English project, whose self-titled album won Best Album at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards in 2014.

Tickets for his Inverness show are available from The Ironworks website and box office from 9am on Friday 31st October.
