Welcome

Welcome to FolkLaw! Exhilarating new-age folk music that will get your feet tapping and your mind thinking! Inspired by 10 years on the road in Europe and North America, FolkLaws songs are a raw social commentary backed up by some inspirational songs and melodies. Edgy lyrics and vocals are accompanied by intricate Celtic and American fiddle and interwoven with wonderfully distinctive vocal harmonies and the bodhran drum. fRoots mag say it's like "Show of Hands with a new wave ethic", while FolkWorld say it's sounds like an "acoustic New Model Army!" . Sounds interesting?! Check it out...!

Music

The second FolkLaw album is out now! "The Tales That They Tell" has been 6 months in the making and features the full-on FolkLaw line-up of Nick, Bryn, Gaz, Marty and Lyndon as the lads play their hearts out with some of the very best FolkLaw songs written over the past two years. This is a fantastic album which features some of our most eagerly anticipated material including Seeds of Freedom, Leaves of Gold, Some way Somehow, and Tales That They Tell, in a superb compilation of 10 previously unrecorded tracks. If you heard the debut solo album Nations Pride then be assured this is a million times better and was so good that Gaz's dad stole Gaz's pre-production copy before Gaz had even finished writing his notes on the mix.
 
You can listen to some of the album tracks on the FolkLaw Music pages or SoundCloud and buy your very own original copy of The Tales That They Tell in the FolkLaw shop. The albums also available digitally around the world on iTunes, and all regional Amazon stores.
