The most celebrated modern folk band in the UK, Lau are from both Scotland and England, formed in 2005.
Named after an Orcadian word meaning “natural light” (although deliberately misspelled it from “lowe”), LAU formed in Edinburgh in 2006 and were quickly hailed as a band of rare innovation and invention. Consisting of Martin Green (accordion and electronics), Aidan O’Rourke (fiddle, fx) and Kris Drever (vocals, guitars), for a decade they have been stretching folk music’s boundaries further and exploring new musical territory with each release and concert tour.
Brilliant musicians, thrilling performers, free-thinking visionaries and all-round good chaps as well, it’s little wonder Lau are regarded as the epicentre of the new folk boom. And they’ve got shelves groaning with awards (BBC Radio 2 Folk Award winners, Best Band of 2008, 2009, 2010, 2013, Album of the Year 2015 by The Herald), a forest’s worth of ecstatic reviews and breathless plaudits from excited audiences in various outposts of the world ringing in their ears to prove it.
