Edinburgh International Festival: Lau-Land

About Edinburgh International Festival: Lau-Land

A special International Festival Lau-Land by Scottish band Lau, featuring Joan As Police Woman, as part of Light on the Shore with Edinburgh Gin Seaside at Leith Theatre.

Lau comprises Kris Drever (vocals, guitar), Martin Green (accordion, wurlitzer, keys, electronics) and Aidan O’Rourke (fiddle) and together they effortlessly bridge the seemingly diametrically opposed worlds of acoustic folk tradition and post rock – electronics. As well as being ‘the most musically adventurous trio in British folk’ (The Guardian) they have proved themselves to be insightful curators, collaborators and educators through their legendary Lau-Land festivals and events.

For their special International Festival Lau-Land, they will be joined by a host of friends and collaborators.

Performance times for this event are approximate and may be subject to change. Full details for this event will be announced on 2 May alongside the full line-up of artists performing as part of Light on The Shore with Edinburgh Gin Seaside. Tickets go on sale from 4 May 2018.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Edinburgh International Festival: Lau-Land are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
