That’s what Channel Four Music said about Scottish greats, Lau. See the hottest folk act right now playing at the Westgarth SC this evening.


Lau have been three times winners of Best Group at the Radio 2 Folk Awards in 2008, 2009 & 2010. Lau are a formidable trio of three of the finest and most innovative exponents of modern traditional music in Britain today. Their live shows are a must-see experience with an energy and musicianship which is spellbinding. Hear them here:


Here's just a fraction of what the critics think:

“Lau are so special” - The Guardian

“Quite frankly, the best band in the world right now” - Channel 4


Lau are supported by the Danby diva herself, the wonderful Elaine Palmer. Elaine is a singer/songwriter that very much charts her own territory. That territory can be quite literal in her descriptions of the moods and feelings she draws from living on the moors or by the sea. Comparisons are very hard to draw but I’m probably minded to look back into the 60s and Bob Dylan or Jonie Mitchell.
