Seth Lakeman will release new album A Pilgrim’s Tale on 7th February 2020 via BMG.
The album is inspired by the Mayflower and 2020 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.
A Pilgrim’s Tale 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.
“If you’d never heard anything about the Mayflower and the birth of the modern USA these words and music could be your primer,” says Lakeman.
The album is available to pre-order now with signed CDs and vinyl available.
