Fleetwood date for folk royalty

Lau (Richard Ecclestone)

They’ve been described as ‘the best live band in the country’ –  and you can judge for yourself when Lau visit Fleetwood next month. The three-piece comprises Martin Green on accordion and electronics, Aidan O’Rourke a nimble fiddle player and singer and guitarist Kris Drever and they’ve won a hatful of awards and plaudits for their innovative take on folk music.

Lau are coming to Fleetwood’s Marine Hall as part of their latest album tour in a gig presented by Band on the Wall and Root Music. Regarded as one of the UK’s most inventive bands, their dazzling performances have captivated audiences across the world. Crowned Best Folk Group at the BBC Radio Two Folk Awards four times, Lau are one of the most exciting live acts touring the UK right now.

Described by The Guardian as ‘perhaps the best live band in the country’, for a decade Lau have been stretching folk music’s boundaries further and exploring new musical territory with each new release and concert tour.

Now touring on the on the back of their acclaimed new album The Bell That Never Rang, produced by Joan Wasser aka Joan As Police Woman, this is a rare opportunity to enjoy a memorable evening of immensely powerful and beautiful songs performed by this much-loved and critically lauded band.

On their upcoming performance at Marine Hall, band member Kris Drever commented: “Lau are delighted to visit Fleetwood, it’s great to have the opportunity to play our music for the good folk of the Fylde coast.”
