A Cornishman who has lived on Dartmoor for 40 years and has been described as: “a stalwart of the West Country Folk scene and the father of a virtual folk dynasty."
He's the dad of Sean, Sam and Seth Lakeman, who are all internationally renowned folk musicians.They began playing as children in a family band with Geoff and their violinist mum, Joy.
Geoff 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.
2017 saw the release of Geoff's debut album 'After All These Years'.
With a stellar line up of musical https://www.crbo.co.uk/office/orders.phpfamily and friends, it showcases his talents perfectly and illustrates the high regard and affection in which he is held.

Penzance Folk Club
Started at the Admiral Benbow pub in Penzance in early 2008 by Alan & Linda Collins, we continue to run it with welcome help from a number of members and performers.
The club runs alternate Wednesdays from 8.30pm; most evenings are "round the room" sessions where everyone has an opportunity to sing, play a tune or tell a story (there is no obligation to perform and audience are equally welcome).
As one might expect, there is an emphasis on Cornish tunes, and most of the tunes come with an invitation to all musicians to join in. When the tune is linked to a Cornish dance, it is not unusual for a few members to take to the (limited) floor space!
Round the room sessions are free entry, but we always run a raffle which raises funds to subsidise our guest nights.
