We are very pleased to present our fifth studio Album 'Personae'.

It is an eclectic emotional see-saw of a journey, melding traditional ballads with our own self-penned material.

"An album by turns curious, thought-provoking, moving and magical – a complete cornucopia astutely delivered by one of the most intriguing, uninhibited and popular duos on the British folk scene."

Highlights include a much requested version of Sandy Denny's song 'Solo', a rollicking Child Ballad 'The Knights Ghost' featuring Sam Kelly of 'The Lost Boys' Fame on guest vocals, and Lakeman sibling Seth guesting on the country tinged 'Old,Old,Old'.
