one of the safest pairs of hands in british folk, seth has made a stirring and beautiful record, narrated by Paul McGann, and featuring guest performances from Cara Dillon, Benji Kirkpatrick, Ben Nicholls and Seth’s father Geoff Lakeman.

2020 marks the 400th anniversary of The Mayflower ship setting off to the Americas. Bottling the spirit of the 17th century pilgrimage, Seth has written and performed a selection of songs that shape a fictional narrative of the journey. as one of the most celebrated members of British folk music, Seth is wholly qualified to replicate the trappings of traditional 17th century musical styles; whether it be through his vocals, stringed instrument arrangements, fiddle playing, or percussion. “it’s hugely impressive and would certainly suit a fully dramatized staging” 8/10 – uncut.
