they go, FolkLaw are a unique blend of energised entertaining UK folk-rock.

Irish flute and whistle of Jacquelyn Hynes (of Silver and Wood), the pure vocal and piano of Emi McDade
, and the fantastic earthy Accordion of Paul Hutchinson (of Belshazzars Feast).
We Will Rise comes on the heels of FolkLaws acclaimed album Smokey Joe,
which was described as "Outstanding and Evocative" by FATEA,
"Stylish Passionate Folk Rock" by R2, and "a milestone of folk music" by
FolkWords"Smokey Joe" is FolkLaw's latest album. Mixed by Lyndon Webb, mastered by Daz Smith,
and released on Fiddle of 8 Records,
