CD Review: Kathryn Roberts & Sean Lakeman's 'Hidden People'

Kathryn Roberts & Sean Lakeman
Hidden People

The UK's folk-based duo, Kathryn Roberts & Sean Lakeman, are a couple with great guitar and vocal skills. Sean is the brother of Seth Lakeman, another renowned folk musician from England. The folk rock renderings of "Oxford, N.Y." are especially inviting. The diverse vocal calithenics and music chords are engaging and catchy throughout. There are no weak tracks here. The upbeat tune, "Hang The Rowan," is very catchy and groovy. There is an element of rock to this tune. But it is also one of the best tunes on the entire album. If Heart and The Cranberries made a song in England, this would be it! Though, the beautiful "The Wisdom Of Standing Still" is a close second. Anyway, Hidden People should appeal to people everywhere. Folk fans rejoice with this one!~ Matthew Forss
