One of Propermusics most popular and best selling artists returns with his new album "Word of Mouth". Recorded this summer in a studio set-up in a Cornish church, "Word Of Mouth" is a defining album for Seth Lakeman's storied career and for the landscape of British folk. It keeps the stripped-back storytelling but embellishes it with a denser, fuller version of Seths hauntingly melodic style.

Seth has bared his traditional folk roots more than ever before with "Word Of Mouth". The sound is deeper and more dramatic than previous albums, in part owing to Seths recruitment of his live band: As well as Ben Nicholls, Cormac Byrne, Lisbee Stainton and Sean Lakeman, guests on the album include Leon Hunt playing banjo on 'Last Rider', cellist India Bourne on 'The Wanderer' and Lau's accordion player Martin Green on 'Tiger'.

Recorded in North Tamerton Church in East Cornwall and featuring the stories of the real people who inspired the album, "Word Of Mouth" straddles the folk tradition Seth's music is steeped in and the contemporary folk movement that he has become such a seminal figure of. Seth Lakeman has been at the forefront of the re-emergence of British folk, its escape from the dark shadow of bearded men in Fair Isle jumpers into a new light for energetic, heartfelt musicians and a rediscovered respect for acoustic music. Word" Of Mouth" shows Seth continuing to lead the way.
