Seth Lakeman tours UK in support of Mayflower-inspired album ‘A Pilgrim’s Tale’

“If you’d never heard anything about the Mayflower and the birth of the modern USA these words and music could be your primer.” – Seth Lakeman

Multi award-winning folk singer Seth Lakeman will release his new album ‘A Pilgrim’s Tale’ on February 7th 2020, in a year that marks four centuries since The Mayflower ship departed the UK. The album will be released amidst a selection of UK concerts where Seth will visit locations significant to the Mayflower tale, including dates in London, Plymouth, Immingham and Harwich (full details below). This stirring and beautiful record is narrated by the actor Paul McGann (Dr Who/Withnail and I/Hornblower/Luther), and features a host of guest performers including Cara Dillon, Benji Kirkpatrick, Ben Nicholls and Seth’s father Geoff Lakeman.

Released by BMG the album is available to pre-order from listnin.co/SethLakeman-APilgrimsTale. The first track ‘Watch Out’ is now available to stream/buy from listnin.co/WatchOut. Fans who order the album will be able to download ‘Watch Out’ immediately.

To coincide with the album’s release, Seth will play live dates specially routed in a trail of towns and cities that, for various reasons, hold significance to the Mayflower journey. Locations such as Immingham – where Separatists made a dangerous escape from England to Holland in their search for religious freedom – and Dartmouth – where the ship was anchored for repairs – will be visited in this expansive tour.
