"Stylish Passionate Folk Rock" - R2, "Outstanding and Evocative" - FATEA, FolkLaw's music will get your feet tapping and your mind thinking. Inspired by 10 years on the road in Europe and North America, FolkLaw's songs are a commentary on life, with earthy lyrics and vocals accompanied by Celtic fiddle and distinctive vocal harmonies. Described as "Show of Hands with a new wave ethic" (fRoots) and winning friends and fans wherever they go, FolkLaw are a unique blend of energised entertaining UK folk-rock.


Out now! The Brand New FolkLaw Album "We Will Rise" - featuring all new songs, and an extended line-up of special guests including the fantastic earthy Accordion of Paul Hutchinson (of Belshazzars Feast), the swirling Irish flute and whistle of Jacquelyn Hynes (of Silver and Wood) and the pure vocal and piano of Emi McDade. There's a couple of promo videos from the album below and more to follow when we get back from Ireland later in the year!
