08 Nov Alaw at Postlip
Alaw at Postlip
Postlip regulars are in for a treat when Alaw are back at Postlip for another night of high-quality folk music. Saturday, 30 November, Doors – 7 .00pm. 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. Combined with powerful song writing and original tunes, this makes for a musical experience that will stay with the listener long after the concert has ended.
Oli, Jamie and Dylan have a long history of working together, sharing projects such as The Devil’s Violin, Szapora and The Ian McMillan Orchestra. Oli and Jamie are well known throughout the folk world as the frontline of Jamie Smith’s Mabon. From stirring song to driving jigs – they communicate their music with relaxed humour and a genuine affection that is truly infectious.
ALAW will be supported by Cairi Jacks. Cairi is an artist and folk singer, also from Wales, who explores themes of belonging, kinship and our relationship to land through a mixture of original compositions and traditional folk songs. Firmly rooted in the oral tradition, with fireside singing in her blood, and a craft honed through a cappela harmony singing, she now brings the many threads of her practice together in an intimate sharing that explores how singing can be powerful tool for connection.
Make this a real occasion and enjoy an early evening meal at one of Winchcombe’s great eateries.
