We know from past experience that the guys behind Mellowtone have well tuned ears, and can spot good music when they hear it. So it comes as no surprise that they’ve joined forces with Ceremony Concerts and Liverpool Music Week to bring Lau back to Liverpool.
For those of you who’ve not heard of Lau, where’ve you been? Lau are Kris Drever, Aidan O’Rourke, and Martin Green, and they’re one of the most exciting folk groups to emerge in recent years.
Channel 4 labeled them “Quite frankly, the best band in the world right now”, and The Guardian said “Lau are so special”. They won the Best Group category at the BBC Radio Two Folk Awards for three consecutive years – 2008, 2009, and 2010 – and were nominated for Best Live Act in 2009 and 2010.
Lau will be playing at The Kazimier on Friday 11th March, with support from Dave Owen.
Doors open at 8.00pm and tickets are £14.50 from wegottickets.com (and ticketweb, and skiddle, and seetickets!) – check out the facebook event page for more details.
Here’s the bit you’ve been waiting for!
