THREE outstanding folk musicians who play together as Welsh music trio Alaw have a New Year tour with Artsreach, Dorset’s rural touring arts charity, continuing at Child Okeford on Saturday 12th at 7.30 and Piddletrenthide on Sunday 13th January at 4pm.
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 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.
