Lau is the pioneering contemporary folk trio comprising three of the UK’s finest traditional musicians: Kris Drever (vocals, guitar), Martin Green (accordion, wurlitzer, keys, electronics) and Aidan O’Rourke (fiddle).
Lau has garnered four awards for Best Group at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards and also appeared on the Later… With Jools Holland TV show (BBC 2 TV). Individual members have all won multiple awards and recognition for their solo work.
Lau announces the release of its first ever retrospective album, Decade (The Best Of 2007-2017), compilation of the trios best tracks, curated by the band and manager Tom Rose from the song and tune suggestions of their very many fans. They are taking this retrospective material to concerts and festival stages throughout the summer of 2017 and then touring it in the UK during the November and December 2017.
“The U.K’s best live band, Lau are remarkable — the most musically adventurous trio in British folk: exquisite and hypnotic, musicianship at its best” ★★★★★ (The Guardian)
