Geoff Lakeman

November 17 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm

£5

Geoff is a leading exponent of the rare Crane Duet concertina. He performs self-written and West Country songs, English, Irish and Scottish folk and other music as varied as Jimmie Rodgers,the Louvin Brothers, Richard Thompson and Randy Newman. He’s also one of the few to play 1920’s/ 30’s jazz on an authentic 1920’s instrument.

His smooth tenor vocals and unique concertina accompaniment have won him plaudits and fans over the years but it has only been since retiring from a long career as a Fleet Street Journalist that Geoff has truly spread his wings musically.

2017 sees the release of Geoff’s debut album ‘After All These Years’. With a stellar line up of musical family and friends it showcases his talents perfectly and illustrates the high regard and affection in which he is held.

REG MEUROSS -“( singer-songwriter) -” Proper living, breathing, strong heart-beating folk music.The whole album is gorgious, beautifully recorded and deeply-rooted in the folk tradition with some excellent performances from all Geoff’s guests and very illustrious family.I recommend it immensely.
