Here's the latest from Plymouth Music Zone...


21st November 2011

PMZ is proud to announce that the multi-award winning musician and singer songwriter Seth Lakeman is to be Plymouth Music Zone’s first patron. Seth is considered one of the hottest talents to have emerged from the British folk scene and is famed for creating powerful music inspired by local folklore and legends around his Dartmoor home. Now he’s making history of his own at Plymouth Music Zone with the launch of the new PMZ Patron Programme that aims to help highlight the impact of the work the charity does.

Seth Lakeman says: “I’m really happy to be Plymouth Music Zone’s first patron. The work the charity does to develop the confidence, skills and aspirations of its participants is fantastic and is clearly making a significant difference. Music education has always been really important to me and as someone from Devon, I’m delighted to be associated with Plymouth Music Zone and to offer my help where I can. I wish them continued success in the future.”

Seth has already made a name for himself having won 2 BBC Folk awards and been a surprise Mercury Prize nominee in 2005. He’s likely to be thrown back into the spotlight again following the release of his latest album only a few days ago. The PMZ Patron Programme has been launched to provide a real way for successful musicians in the industry to engage with PMZ to see and support how music transforms lives at a grassroots level. Seth will now be advocating on PMZ’s behalf and is keen to get involved and play some great music with us too...
