Electric Voices and Farnham Maltings are presenting Lau, a formidable union of three of the finest and most innovative exponents of modern traditional music in Scotland today at the Maltings, in Surrey on Saturday 30th May 2009.

The band are made up of:
Aidan O'Rourke - an incredible fiddle player and composer from Oban and was voted Instrumentalist of the Year 2006 at the Scots Trad Music Awards. A member of the hugely successful Blazin' Fiddles, Aidan's skills are much sought after having performed on over 60 albums.
Kris Drever - a native of Kirkwall, Orkney, Kris' distinctive guitar style and singing voice have brought him much attention in recent years. His debut solo album, Black Water won the BBC Radio 2 Horizon Award. Kris also plays in The Kate Rusby Band
Martin Green - a well known face both sides of the border. He has played with many of the great exponents of folk and traditional music including Joan Baez, Kathryn Tickell, Linda Thompson, and a long-term collaboration with Eliza Carthy.
