Track of the Week: Kathryn Roberts & Sean Lakeman – The Ballad of Andy Jacobs

  • December 7, 2015

Kathryn Roberts & Sean Lakeman - Hidden PeopleFor our track of the week, we’ve selected Kathryn Roberts and Sean Lakeman’s song ‘The Ballad of Andy Jacobs’, taken from their 2012 album ‘Hidden People’. The evocative song is inspired by Kathryn’s childhood memories of the coal miner’s strike in South Yorkshire during the 80’s.

The tracks on ‘Hidden People’ range from Kathryn’s haunting lead vocals, to rousing a cappella harmony, mellow and heart-rending piano ballads, foot-tapping rockabilly beats, tunes with a world-music tinge and full-on folk-rock. Yet the core of the album is good old-fashioned story-telling.

Hidden People is availble now from Propermusic, Amazon, iTunes, Spotify and all good record stores.
