Moonbeams very proudly presents Lau..

Friday 30th September
at The Bell Hotel, Driffield, East Yorkshire
Doors 7.30pm.. Start 8.00pm

Winner of 'Best Group' in BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2008, 2009 & 2010 Winner of 'BEST LIVE ACT' Scots Trad Music Awards 2009

In 2004, sat around a kitchen table in Edinburgh, Lau took their first musical steps. Now, to have achieved so much, in so few years, is staggering. The warmth and excitement they generate with each new release, and at every gig, has culminated in armfuls of plaudits, including three consecutive years of ...being crowned 'Best Group' at the BBC Radio Two Folk Awards.

Lau are a trio consisting of guitarist and singer Kris Drever, fiddler and composer Aidan O'Rourke and accordionist Martin Green. The three men are all acclaimed musicians in their own right and have a slew of awards and nominatons between them including Drever's Best Newcomer from the BBC Folk Awards, O'Rourke's Instrumentalist of the Year at the Scots Music Awards and Green's nomination for musician of the year in the BBC Folk Awards.

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.

Lau's creativity transcends all the music they hold dear, creating a cutting edge sound which garners praise from far beyond the roots scene, and their humble beginnings.

Their cutting-edge sound and charismatic flair have earned the trio an exhilarating reputation at clubs, concert halls and festivals, and now you can see them live on stage at Moonbeams.

"…quite frankly the best band in the world right now" (Channel 4 Music)

Tickets are £14 and available from
