TUESDAY 22 FEBRUARY - 8:00 PM
Kris Drever guitar, vocals
Martin Green accordion
Aidan O’Rourke fiddle
For the re-scheduled Unplugged Tour Lau will recreate and rearrange material from across their catalogue highlighting an hour of raw, stripped down performance without pedalboards or electronics, just voice, fiddle, guitar and accordion and a 4 track tape
The pioneering folk trio have always experimented with sound and form; the results have always been complex and thrilling.
Already acknowledged as phenomenal live performers (the UK’s best live band The Guardian), Lau arrived at a new creative peak with 2019’s Midnight and Closedown (Reveal Records). That album was produced by John Parish (PJ Harvey, This Is The Kit), who said: Lau are in touch with their roots but not bound by them.
Please Note: the instruments for this evening will be played acoustically but the performance will be amplified
Lau are a remarkable band – the most musically adventurous trio in British folk – exquisite and hypnotic, musicianship at its best. ★★★★★ The Guardian
