Natural Light

Orcadian is a dialect of Scots, spoken on Orkney. Lau means 'natural light' in Orcadian, and Lau is the name of a folk band set up in Edinburgh in 2006. Their music is exciting, beautiful, and inventive. The band,
Martin Green, Aidan O’Rourke and Kris Drever, (all award-winning musicians individually), for three years in a row, from 2008 to 2010, won Best Group in the prestigious BBC Folk Awards.

Here is a link to ‘Saint Monday’, the beautiful first track from the album, Race The Loser, which is due out in October. 
And if that doesn't convince you, you may as well drop you ears in the bin before going to bed.
