Scottish/English trio Lau have taken the folk world by storm.
Winners of the Best Group at the 2013 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards (having won the title 3 times previously), Lau takes traditional music into exciting new territory.
Kris Drever’s mellow voice and guitar, Aidan O’Rourke’s masterful fiddle and Martin Green’s explosive accordion make for a wholly addictive sound. They are nothing if not innovative, bringing freshness of ideas and arrangements to tunes old and new.
Their recent album, Race the Loser, has proved their most ground breaking, and won them a following that transcends folk: they were recently guests on Later with Jools Holland.
Lau are one of those bands that simply ooze pure class.
