The most celebrated modern folk band in the UK, Lau are named after an Orcadian word meaning “natural light”. Formed in Edinburgh in 2006 they were quickly hailed as a band of rare innovation and invention, winning four BBC Folk Awards for Best Band as they stretched folk music’s boundaries and explored new musical territory with each release and concert tour. Lau’s concerts are unforgettable live experiences and their thrilling marriage of acoustic and electronic sound, theatricality and virtuosity is a joy to experience.
This tour celebrates the February release of Lau’s new album
‘Midnight and Closedown’.

Mae Lau, band gwerin modern mwyaf adnabyddus yn y DU, wedi’i enwi ar ôl un o eiriau’r Ynysoedd Erch sy’n golygu “golau naturiol”. Ffurfiwyd y band yng Nghaeredin yn 2006 ac yn gyflym iawn daeth i gael ei gydnabod fel band oedd ag arloesedd a dyfeisgarwch prin, gan ennill pedair Gwobr Gwerin BBC am y Band Gorau wrth iddynt ymestyn ffiniau cerddoriaeth werin ac archwilio tiriogaeth gerddorol newydd gyda phob cyhoeddiad neu daith cyngherddau. Mae cyngherddau Lau yn brofiadau byw bythgofiadwy ac mae eu cyfuniad gwefreiddiol o sain acwstig ac electronig, profiad theatraidd a meistrolaeth yn bleser i’w brofi.
Mae’r daith hon yn dathlu rhyddhau albwm newydd Lau, ‘Midnight and Closedown’, ym mis Chwefror.
