About
Named after the Orcadian word for natural light, Lau – Kris Drever, guitar/vocal; Martin Green, accordion/piano/electronics; Aidan O’Rourke, fiddle – are the bravest and most experimental act in folk: a trio of virtuosos who blend traditional instruments with very contemporary interests, as heard on the David Lynchian soundscapes of their rapturously received last album, ’The Bell That Never Rang’ (“Captivating, exquisite, stunning” – Songlines). Four-time winners of BBC Folk Awards for Best Group and regular favourites at Celtic Connections, Lau have been described as “The UK’s best live band” by The Guardian. Previous performances at St George’s have been among our most celebrated shows, as the band fit the venue like a glove.
