Lau  : Unplugged Tour

For the first time in over a decade, Lau present an entirely acoustic tour.

The pioneering Scottish folk trio has always experimented with sound and form; the results have been complex and thrilling.

Already acknowledged as phenomenal live performers, Lau arrived at a new creative peak with 2019’s Midnight and Closedown.  Their 2020 Unplugged concert tour sees traditional music’s most celebrated innovators strip away their banks of electronics, loops and wild effects.

The trio of Kris Drever (guitar, vocals), Martin Green (accordion) and Aidan O’Rourke (fiddle) feel drawn to a more raw and plain-speaking aesthetic. The approach is subtler, less about spectacle, more about close listening.

In brash and polarised political times, here is the poetry of real instruments and considerate music making.

'Lau is a remarkable band – the most musically adventurous trio in British folk – exquisite and hypnotic, musicianship at its best’.  The Guardian
‘This is music of such stunning creativity – one of the most thrilling live bands’. Sunday Herald
