ALAW is three leading musicians who bring a wealth of experience to a shared passion - the traditional music of Wales. 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, Jamie and Dylan 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.

At first it feels like discipline A man must feel no pain And if emotions start to rise Just push them back again Though I can feel the pressure build I'm trying not to crack For words like stones that have been thrown They can’t be taken back A sudden ash of enmity For all that was not said Care, compassion, tolerance Consumed in clouds of red My vicious tongue is off the leash I go on the attack But words like stones that have been thrown They can't be taken back Resentment grows like bitter weeds In fields of slow regret Blots out the sun of our reason And helps us to forget Now in the house where we once lived The walls are painted black For words like stones that have been thrown They can't be taken back The hate we deal the pain we feel In time it fades away And now at last just sad remorse Must face the light of day But we can paint these walls again And build a place to live The stone was thrown we won't forget Perhaps we can forgive
