ALAW combines the craftsmanship of 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.
This special concert at the Chapel celebrates the launch of ALAW’s new album ‘Dead Man’s Dance’ and they will be joined by guest singer Gwilym Bowen Rhys.
Oli Wilson-Dickson, Jamie Smith and Dylan Fowler 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.
