Seth Lakeman is marking the 20th anniversary of his breakthrough folk album with a tour that will bring him to the east of England next month.

Produced by his brother Sean in their kitchen for just £300, Lakeman’s 2004 release Kitty Jay – which was inspired by the legends and stories of Dartmoor, where he grew up – was nominated for the Mercury Prize the following year.

Since then, the singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist has released nearly a dozen more albums.

Lakeman will play The Apex, Bury St Edmunds, on Friday, February 23.

His touring band will include long-time collaborators Benji Kirkpatrick, Ben Nicholls, Cormac Byrne and Alex Hart.
