Award-winning trio make a date at harbour fiesta
Lau, newly re-crowned kings of folk, will appear at Fowey Festival in May – their only scheduled Westcountry date announced for this summer. The Scottish trio, who are shortly heading out to Australia and New Zealand on tour, were presented with the award for Best Group at last week's BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards in Glasgow. It's a title Kris Drever, Martin Green and Aidan O'Rourke reclaimed from June Tabor and Oysterband (see right), after winning it in 2008, 2009 and 2010.
The contemporary folk three-piece, named after an Orcadian word for "natural light", will perform on the main stage in the festival village on Tuesday, May 14. They will be joining an international line-up of musicians, comedians, actors and authors, who are converging on the Cornish harbour town for the 11-day festival.
Other musical acts lined up are award-winning contemporary saxophonist YolanDa Brown and her band, Broadway and West End star Ruthie Henshall, the National Youth Jazz Orchestra and The Duchy Opera performing Baron Herzog's Box of Operatic Delights. Tickets for all dates are now on sale.

Miranda Sykes and Rex Preston make a great team, both on and off stage. The unique connection between can be witnessed when they perform at the Acoustic Sessions at Devoran Village Hall on February 17. Miranda, one of England's few female double bass players and an accomplished singer, is best known as the third member of Show of Hands. Rex has a reputation as a fine and imaginative mandolin player and is a leading light in a new wave of British bluegrass musicians. Together they make one of the most exciting new pairings on the acoustic roots scene.
