FOLK, roots and jazz duo Landermason make the journey over from Northumberland to appear live in West Cumbria next month.

The pair make a long-awaited return to Rosehill Theatre, in Whitehaven, on Friday August 17, performing in Messel's Bar as part of the Club Messel series.

Landermason features the combined talents of multi-instrumentalist Fiona Lander, and fingerstyle guitarist, singer and ukulele player Paul Mason.

Together they present a fabulous evening of entertainment covering a variety of musical genres along the way, including folk, classical and jazz.

As well as recording and producing five studio albums, an EP and a charity single on their own label, LAMA Records, they have enjoyed airplay on BBC Radio 2, 3 and 4, plus many other radio stations across the network.

Their recording of Dance to Your Daddy was used for an episode of the BBC's Antiques Roadshow and their track Somalia was used in the BBC3 documentary Escape from the World's Most Dangerous Place, narrated by film actress Scarlett Johansson.

The duo's live sound is impressive, full of variety and with plenty of audience interaction.

Landermason last played Rosehill in September 2009 as part of the theatre's 50th birthday celebration weekend, and their highly anticipated return is part of a UK tour promoting their new album, Stand Together, released this month.

Five out of the 10 tracks on the record were played across the airwaves in the first week the album was on sale, including plays on BBC Radio Wales, West Norfolk Radio, Blues and Roots Radio, Radio Tyneside and Readifolk Radio.

Landermason will be playing the new material at the Rosehill Theatre on Friday 17, from 8pm, and tickets are available from the venue's box office.
