ACCLAIMED singer-songwriter Seth Lakeman is bringing a new band line-up to Bridgwater this week.

After releasing his ninth studio album, The Well Worn Path, Lakeman will bring his latest show to the McMillan Theatre on Friday (March 1).

He is taking a break from his role as part of the Robert Plant musical juggernaut, where he is part of the former Led Zeppelin frontman's band - The Sensational Space Shifters - to tour across the UK.

Describing the new album, a spokesperson said: "It’s a return to a no-nonsense, organic, classic folk-rock approach with hints of Fairport Convention, Neil Young, Nick Cave and Billy Bragg - plus Lakeman’s trademark foot-stomping, fiddle bow-shredding and soaring vocals.

"Seth brought in top producer Ben Hillier and along with long-time collaborator Ben Nicholls on upright and electric bass, he was joined by new boys Kit Hawes on electric and acoustic guitar and drummer Evan Jenkins."

The BBC Radio 2 Folk Award winner’s previous albums include Mercury Prize nominated ‘Kitty Jay’ and the gold-selling ‘Freedom Fields’.

Tickets for the show, which gets underway at 7.30pm, are priced at £25, available via or by phone from the box office on 01278 556677.
