Brilliant musicians, thrilling performers, free-thinking visionaries and all-round good chaps as well…small wonder Lau are regarded as one of the most important bands at the epicentre of the new folk boom.

Lau began their journey as three blokes sitting down to play a few tunes on fiddle, guitar and squeeze-box at a kitchen table in Edinburgh one day in 2004.

Since then Lau has not merely become one of the great success stories of the last decade and a barometer of the fast-changing and increasingly all-embracing face of British folk music –

The band has collaborated with an impressive and eclectic list of artists including singer/songwriter Karine Polwart, electronica innovator Adem Cream rock legend Jack Bruce and classical music orchestra Northern Sinfonia.


‘One of the most exciting live acts in any genre, Lau are to be cherished’  The Arts Desk

 ‘Lau are so special’ The Guardian

 ‘Lau has injected a freshness, vitality, vigour into the UK folk scene’ BBC

 Astonishing walls of sound, truly magnificent’  The Scotsman

’Unconventional and intricate, Lau are far from traditional’  NME
