Announcing a new Meetup for London Folk Music Meetup Group!
When: Thursday, July 22,[masked]:30 PM
83 Rivington Street
London EC2A 3AY
An opportunity to hear the phenomenal Lau live in a relatively intimate setting. One of the best live acts i've seen and heard. If you havn't heard them you should really take the opportunity while you can. Should be a corker.
LAU, widely regarded as this generation?s most inventive folk band and Winners of BEST GROUP at the 2010, 2009 & 2008 BBC Folk Awards, return with highly anticipated new album "Arc Light" (Navigator).
Formed out of the progressive traditional music scene in Edinburgh, Lau have consistently discovered new musical boundaries with their unique take on ?folk?. The multi- award winning Scots / English trio have issued three highly acclaimed albums, in as many years (?Lightweights & Gentlemen? 2007, ?Live? 2008, ?Arc Light? 2009) which have seen the band taken their legendary live concert show to all corners of the globe.
Lau are: Kris Drever ? Guitar, Vocal. Martin Green ? Accordion Aidan O?Rourke ? Fiddle
== ?Creative and genre bursting? **** The Scotsman 'Balancing frenzied hi-octane moments with those of aching beauty. Album of the Year' FROOTS Magazine 'a combined sense of style, adventure and fun that turns the album into an utter corker' The Telegraph ?Lau are so special? **** The Guardian 'Lau's explosive live performances have been generating a major buzz around the UK folk circuit, and this brilliant debut confirms their standing as one of the most exciting new acts in years' Songlines 5/5
