Grayshott Folk Club presents: LAU
November 26 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm£22.00
Monday 26th November 2018 @ 7.30pm
Individually and collectively, these guys are the very best there is in Folk music. Their innovative and inspirational music marries Folk with Electronica and has won them countless awards and kept them at the top of the Folk tree for over ten years. We are delighted to welcome them to Grayshott Folk Club.
Some of you keen listeners to the BBC Radio 2 Folk Show will have heard the interview on Wednesday 31st October
between Ricky Ross (who is standing in for Mark Radcliffe at the moment) and Aidan O’Rourke, who is a member of LAU. Lau will be our special guests at Grayshott Village Hall on MONDAY 26th November 2018. Ricky played a couple of tracks from a new project that features the music of Fiddler Aidan and Harmonium/Piano player Kit Downes and which is based upon responses to short stories written by author James Robertson.
Ricky then went on to play a World Premiere of an exquisite and gentle track called “Riad” which is the last track on Lau’s upcoming new album called “Midnight and Close Down”. Lau will be playing songs and tunes from the new album as well as songs and tunes from their back catalogue when they visit us later this month.
If you listen to the whole interview which starts at twenty minutes in to the programme, you’ll hear the brilliant playing of Aidan as well as his band mates Kris Drever (Vocals/Guitar) and Martin Green (Accordion/Wurlitzer/Keys/Electronics).
If you listen more closely still, you might even hear the briefest mention of Lau’s gig at “Hindhead”!
