Music - Folk & Country
Seth Lakeman
Award-winning folk singer Seth Lakeman has announced a UK tour routed in a trail of towns and cities that, hold significance to the Mayflower ship. Locations such as Immingham - where Separatists made a dangerous escape from England to Holland in their search for religious freedom - and Dartmouth - where the ship was anchored for repairs - will be visited in this expansive tour. 2020 marks the 400th anniversary of the Mayflower ship setting off to the Americas. The ship carried British and Dutch passengers with hopes of fresh settlement, and who were famously met by the Wampanoag first nation tribe upon their arrival. Close your eyes, and with each track you feel possessed by one of those 17th century characters; a crewman wrestling to control the ship, a pilgrim celebrating in rapturous faith, or the solemn Wampanoag tribesmen forlornly surrendering to the new way of life thrust upon them.
