This review is from: Kitty Jay (Audio CD)
Not being a new folkie, an old folkie, or much of a folkie at all it took the Mercury Prize nomination to wake me up to the talent that is Seth Lakeman.
Was lucky enough to have him play a gig in a local pub in the week he was nominated, and was amazed by both his voice and fiddle playing as he ran through most of the Kitty Jay album in a tiny but packed venue.
Naturally I rushed to get this album and happily it sounds just as good. (Why does anyone spend more than three hundred quid on recording a album when you can achieve this quality in your kitchen?)
Whenever I hear Seth being interviewed he comes over as down to earth, good humoured and in love with the music, not the attention.. which gives me another reason to admire him.
What with Seth, Teignmouth's Muse, and the Superimposers, is Devon making a case for being the new home of quality music??
