About

To simply call KRIS DREVER ‘a folksinger’ would be like saying that LAU, the acclaimed band in which he also sings and plays, is ‘a Scottish folk trio’. Both true descriptions but reductive ones that only hint at the progressive joys contained in the music of each.

The duo started life with a successful tour in Spring 2015, releasing the limited edition Last Man Standing EP. Connected through song now for over a decade, when Kris approached Boo about his song Harvest Gypsies for Kris' debut album Black Water, Drever and Hewerdine have more recently written new songs for BBC Radio 2's Radio Ballads album and show. 2018 audiences can expect to hear many of their favourite songs from across both artists catalogues and some new songs played for the first time.
