Geoff Lakeman

Geoff LakemanMeavy Parish Hall
Friday 24th of November, at 7:30pm

Geoff Lakeman 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.
