LAU are Kris Drever, Martin Green & Aidan O'Rourke.

Kris Drever is an Orcadian multi-instrumentalist, from singing and guitar playing to banjo and double bass. He has been in great demand since moving to Edinburgh in 1995.

Kris has done a myriad of different projects, quickly moving from traditional pub sessions to the gigging circuit, playing large tours of the United States and Chile with dance show Celtic Fusion. After leaving the show Kris began working with Fine Friday, and also worked as a session musician for a variety of artists including The Battlefield Band, John McCusker, Kathie Ryan, Harem Scarem, Clare Mclaughlin and with his father, folk singer and guitarist Ivan Drever.

Since then Kris has toured much of Europe, Canada and Australia with Fine Friday and many other outfits. He has also toured Canada with trumpeteer and fiddler Daniel Lapp and England, Ireland and Wales with folk superstar Kate Rusby.

Kris also performs with Eamonn Coyne and plays in the John McCusker band and Session A9.

“…huge abilities on guitar and a highly evolved contemporary singing style”
Scotland on Sunday

Martin Green grew up playing English and Irish traditional music in the south of England. He has played with many of the great singers and players of English music including Martin Carthy, Norma Waterson, Kathryn Tickell, Linda Thompson, and a long-term collaboration with Eliza Carthy culminatining in a duo album "Dinner" released to great acclaim in 2001.

A keen interest in composition and more contemporary music lead to several theatre and performance based commissions including musical director for the huge outdoor show "Albatross" (2004) and work with jazz trumpeteer Colin Steele on a production of "The Little World of Don Camillo", which is still touring nationally. In the last year Martin has performed with John Rae's Celtic Feet, The Unusual Suspects, Salsa Celtica, The Felsons, and The Daniel Lapp trio.

“Martin Green is as virtuosic as he is entertaining." The Guardian

Aidan is a fiddle player and composer from Oban on the West Coast of Scotland. He has toured extensively in Europe and North America from the age of 15 and has made his name as one of Scotland's most expressive and dynamic musicians. At 19, Aidan formed Tabache with Claire Mann and went on to record the internationally acclaimed album 'Waves of Rush'.

Aidan now performs with the hugely successful Blazin' Fiddles (Live Act of the Year 2004) and is a much sought after session musician, having performed on over 60 albums ranging from Runrig to Michael McGoldrick and Karen Mathieson. Recently he was nominated as 'Instrumentalist of the year' at the Scots Traditional Music Awards and recent commissions have included a piece entitled 'Mantra Alba' which welcomed the Dalai Lama to Scotland in June last year. Currently Aidan is musician in residence at the Tolbooth in Stirling.

'Sirius' is his first 'solo' album which evolved from a commission by Celtic Connections festival in 2003.

“O'Rourke underlined the sheer quality available in this band, with marvelous, soft toned articulation and apparently endless reserves of musicality.” The Herald
