Oli Wilson-Dickson – fiddle
Dylan Fowler – guitar
Jamie Smith – accordion
ALAW combines the craftsmanship of 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 and Jamie will be well known to Manx audiences through their performances with Jamie Smith’s Mabon. Between the three of them they have performed with Richard Thompson, Barrule, The Devil’s Violin, Ian McMillan and more. From stirring songs to driving jigs – they communicate their music with relaxed humour and a genuine affection that is truly infectious.
