Alaw unites the talents of three exceptional musicians whose subtle interplay is a joy to watch. Drawing on a wealth of experience they take their audiences on a musical journey- a tune brought back from a tour of Bulgaria or collaboration in India- but at the heart of their set is a passion for the old tunes of Wales. From sublime slow airs to dazzling dance tunes and storming songs. Alaw promise a performance of joyful and life-affirming music. From the elegant to the virtuoso, Alaw play with an empathy that comes from many years of working together. Dylan and Oliver have performed in Szapora and The Ian McMillan Orchestra ‘a bunch of top-drawer world musicians’ John Medd, Nott Eve Post. Oliver and Jamie are well known throughout the folk world as the frontline of Jamie Smith’s Mabon; “A top band led by one hell of an accordion player” Mike Harding, BBC Radio 2. www.alaw-band.com
