Cecil Sharp Project - the cast; Kathryn Roberts

An early duo career with fellow Barnsleyite Kate Rusby led to much critical acclaim and an award winning album. This partnership led swiftly to the teaming up with the Three Lakeman brothers from West Devon and the folk–pop band 'Equation' was born.

Her relationship with Sean Lakeman flourished both personally and musically, and after a decade of relentless touring the two decided to return to their English roots and gig as an acoustic duo.

A lauded singer, one of the finest of her generation, Kathryn is held in high regard by peers and music fans alike. Now after a few years of proud motherhood she feels ready to return to the place she belongs, singing at the front of a stage.
