One of the most accomplished acts on the folk circuit Scottish band Lau play the Glens Centre Manorhamilton this Thursday, June 28 at 8.30pm.
The multi award winning band have been described by Channel 4 as ‘Quite frankly, the best band in the world right now’ and also won the Best LIve Act in The BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards for 3 years running. Lau combine stunning musicianship with a ground-breaking yet playful approach to traditional music that transcends the music they hold dear, creating a cutting edge sound which garners praise from far beyond the roots scene. Prepare to be wowed by the wildly inventive Martin Green on accordion keys and effects, Aidan O’Rourke’s impossibly beautiful fiddle playing, Kris Drever’s virtuoso guitar and honeyed baritone voice, not to mention some excellent on stage banter and chemistry between the band.
In front of an audience the trio are renowned for pushing their compositions and each other to new heights. With seemingly telepathic musical communication, ten minute epics will be infused with a spectrum of emotion: the perfect foil for Kris’s poignant vocal numbers and some eminently quotable stage banter.
Tickets are €15/12 or bring another adult and up to 3 children for only €40, call 071 98 55833 or book on line at www.theglenscentre.com
