Lau Unplugged


Lau appearing at this event

Widely regarded as this generation's most inventive folk band, Lau have been crowned Best Folk Group at the BBC Radio Two Folk Awards three years on the trot. Kris Drever (vocals/guitar) from the Orkney Islands, Martin Green (accordion) from East Anglia and Aidan O’Rourke (fiddle) from Oban are a phenomenally talented trio of musicians and their cutting edge sound and charismatic flair have earned them an unrivalled reputation at national and international venues and festivals. Lau is a formidable union of three of the finest and most innovative exponents of modern traditional music in Scotland today. ‘Lau has injected a freshness, vitality, vigour into the UK folk scene’ (BBC) 'Astonishing walls of sound, truly magnificent' (The Scotsman) 'Unconventional and intricate, Lau are far from traditional' (NME) 'Lau are so special' (The Guardian) 'One of the most exciting live acts in any genre, Lau are to be cherished' (The Arts DEsk) '... a symbol of musical innovation – a blaze of white hot sparks' (MUSICOMH) 'Amazing, our most favourite band in the world' (Holy Moly).
