Described by Songlines magazine as a “Welsh supergroup”, ALAW is three leading musicians who bring a wealth of experience to a shared passion – the traditional music of Wales. Whether unearthing rare gems or reimagining a well-loved melody, they treat their music with a deftness and sensitivity that is thoroughly absorbing. From stirring song to driving jigs – they communicate their music with relaxed humour and a genuine affection that is truly infectious.
In August 2018 they collaborated with the BBC Concert Orchestra for a televised Prom at The Royal Albert Hall with Julie Fowlis, Jarlath Henderson, Sam Lee and The Unthanks. ALAW’s performance was described on BBC Radio 2 as “Show-stopping” and in the Times as “a sparkling collision of Celtic traditions”. In 2019 they won a Wales Folk Award after being nominated in 3 categories.
