Bookline

Internationally acclaimed modern folk trio Lau announce a European tour in support of their highly anticipated forthcoming new album (due for release in May 2015 on Reveal Records).

Lau are three highly individual and extremely gifted musicians – 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.

2012’s ‘Race The Loser’ album was nominated for Scottish Album of the Year and featured in many critics best of year lists. Lau appeared on BBC TV’s Later… with Jools Holland extending their audience considerably in the process and won their fourth BBC Radio Folk Award for Best Group a few months later.

For their new album, The Elysian Quartet, a group that share Lau’s fearless desire to create something new through improvisation, will feature and the new recordings are produced by Brooklyn based artist and multi-instrumentalist Joan Wasser (Joan As Police Woman). What comes next from Lau promises to be their greatest musical recorded statement yet.
