Product Description

Recorded this summer in a studio set-up in a Cornish church, Word Of Mouth is a defining album for Seth Lakemans storied career and for the landscape of British folk. It keeps the stripped-back storytelling but embellishes it with a denser, fuller version of Seths hauntingly melodic style. Seth has bared his traditional folk roots more than ever before with Word Of Mouth. The sound is deeper and more dramatic than previous albums, in part owing to Seths recruitment of his live band: As well as Ben Nicholls, Cormac Byrne, Lisbee Stainton and Sean Lakeman, guests on the album include Leon Hunt playing banjo on Last Rider, cellist India Bourne on The Wanderer and Lau accordion player Martin Green on Tiger. Recorded in North Tamerton Church in East Cornwall and featuring the stories of the real people who inspired the album, Word of Mouth straddles the folk tradition Seths music is steeped in and the contemporary folk movement that he has become such a seminal figure of. Seth Lakeman has been at the forefront of the re-emergence of British folk, its escape from the dark shadow of bearded men in Fair Isle jumpers into a new light for energetic, heartfelt musicians and a rediscovered respect for acoustic music. Word Of Mouth shows Seth continuing to lead the way.

Seth Lakeman proves once again that he is a master at what he does. 'Word of Mouth' contains 15 original songs, each tells a tale of a chapter in the history of Seth's beloved Devon and Cornwall. The second disc contains interviews telling the tales which inspired the lyrics for the songs, songs such as Tiger, which tells the tale of military disaster during the training for D-Day. Labour She Calls Home, tells the tale of Rowena Cade and her tireless job improving the Minack open air theatre. Bal Maiden, tells a story of female labourers in the mines of Cornwall. There is also a bonus dvd of the making of the album. The whole package is housed in a hard backed book which has the lyrics printed inside and a selection of photographs.

Seth Lakeman is one of a generation of young musicians, including his own brothers, who have shown an encouraging ability to build on traditions in English music and create a sound and a style which, if they might have seemed strange and alien to the collectors of folk music of a century ago, demonstrate the continuing strength and persistence of the music of our forebears. There is nothing really innovative in this new recording that will seem unfamiliar to those of us who know his earlier work, but he maintains his high standard with interesting and clever arrangements of attractive songs, using excellent musicians.

After being slightly disappointed with his last album 'Tales from the Barrel House' This for me is Seth at his best again. If you are a fan of the up beat ballads like 'Cherry Red' or the more haunting melodies, this album has both. As always high quality lyrics and outstanding musicianship are a given. After hearing it for the first time I booked tickets to see him in Northampton via the ticket master website (Fifth row!) Even my 17 year old daughter is coming- what more can I say...fantastic

We collect Seth Lakeman CD's in this house so were pleased to see this released.

Seth Lakeman has a full band put together in Word of Mouth which is a lovely contrast from the CD he released in 2012 called Tales From the Barrel House. Both are lovely but the contrast is big. The only (slight) difficulty with Word of Mouth is that it seems slightly too smooth - as though all the basic raw edge of the folk style has been edited out. For me, that is part of the charm of this type of music. However, the new songs are really good and I love the fact that they are based around interviews with local people (Devon and Cornwall) giving them authenticity and meaning.

I've been really pleased with this recording and would recommend it.

This is an incredible album which goes back to the 'real Seth'... He's dabbled with more commercial records in the last few years, but with Tales From The Barrel House and this new album Word of Mouth we see a return to what Seth has always been about: telling real stories in an earthy, real way. Beautiful.

As you'd expect from Seth, another very classy album indeed. Many good songs and a couple of excellent. If you have never listened then starting here is as good a place as any. Very classy.

Seth has done it again! I originally heard his stuff from the Freedom Fields and Poor Man's Heaven albums, which were also fantastic, thus leading me to purchase his newest work. It's no wonder this album has won awards in the Folk category. It's full of high energy blazing fiddles, well structured musicianship and vocals, All in all a well produced album which is full of happy and sad songs alike. A real hair-raiser and spine-tingler.

If you're into your folk music, It certainly won't disappoint. The delivery was quick and efficient from Amazon and so far I've had no problems with the quality of the CD.
