Danny Green leads the band, Laish, as a mesmeric singer-guitarist and an entertaining, energetic front man. New album, Time Elastic, out in April, on the respected Talitres label (The National, Micah P Hinson). soaks up the best of classic songwriting and delivers a mature and playful record, full of surprises. This is a bold step forward and presents a songwriter at the height of his powers.

Laish have toured extensively across UK and Europe, performing at festivals like End of the Road, Cambridge Folk and Larmer Tree. This is their first UK full band tour since 2013.
