The most celebrated modern folk band in the UK, Lau, bring their music to Brighton.
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.
After several months of dedicated rehearsal in O’Rourke’s kitchen, putting together a set of all original tunes, they made their debut with gigs at the Leith Folk Club and Edinburgh Festival in 2006. The empathetic interplay and unexpected twists in their music made them an instant hit, partly because nobody – not even the band members – knew exactly what they’d do next.
2012’s ‘Race The Loser’ album was nominated for Scottish Album of the Year and featured in many critics best of year lists.
