An evening with Kris Drever & Band (featuring Louis Abbott of Admiral Fallow and Euan Burton)

To simply call Kris Drever ‘a folksinger’ would be like saying that LAU, the acclaimed band in which he also sings and plays, is ‘a Scottish folk trio’. Both true descriptions but reductive ones that only hint at the progressive joys contained in the music of each.

Kris Drever launches into 2016 with a brand new studio album If Wishes Were Horses (Reveal Records). With it he celebrated his first decade as an acclaimed solo artist and songwriter. The new album is his first for six years (during which time his band Lau have established themselves as the most widely acclaimed and musically progressive trio in British folk music).
