"Whirling jigs and lyrics that bite!" (fRoots). FolkLaw bring you some exhilarating songs and music which get feet tapping, minds thinking and festival crowds jumping! Acrobatic fiddling and earthy vocals are interwoven with distinctive vocal harmonies and an energized stage performance is guaranteed. FolkLaws second album ‘The Tales That They Tell’ has been described as “a touch of magic” (Bright Young Folk) and “Full of Passion!” (R2), and contained songs which reached the semi-finals of the UK song writing contest and have delighted audiences at Festivals, Arts Centers and FolkClubs across the UK. Prior to forming FolkLaw, Nick performed with folk artists across Europe and North America, supporting acts such as the Oysterband, Shane Macgowan and the Levellers.
