For the first time in over a decade, Lau present an entirely acoustic tour**. The pioneering Scottish folk trio have always experimented with sound and form; the results have always been complex and thrilling.

Already acknowledged as phenomenal live performers (the UK’s best live band The Guardian), Lau arrived at a new creative peak with 2019’s Midnight and Closedown (Reveal Records). That album was produced by John Parish (PJ Harvey, This Is The Kit), who said: Lau are in touch with their roots but not bound by them.

Now 2020’s Unplugged concert tour sees traditional music’s most celebrated innovators strip away their banks of electronics, loops and wild effects. The trio feel drawn to a more raw and plain-speaking aesthetic. The approach is subtler, less about spectacle, more about close listening. In brash and polarised political times, here is the poetry of real instruments and considerate music making.

**Please Note: the instruments for this evening will be played acoustically but the performance will be amplified**

Lau are a remarkable band – the most musically adventurous trio in British folk – exquisite and hypnotic, musicianship at its best. ★★★★★ The Guardian
