THREE of Britain's greatest folk musicians are to play a rare intimate concert in Wem next month.

Dylan Fowler, Oli Wilson-Dickson and Nia Lynn are Alaw – feted as one of the new supergroups of modern folk music and they will appear at Wem Town Hall on December 5.

The performance promises to be popular as the group mix old favourites with material from their forthcoming album, Drawn To The Light.

Guitarist Dylan says he could not be more delighted to get close to his audience.

"It's fantastic to play big capacity concert halls, but in smaller venues you get a real intimacy," says Dylan.

"Wem Town Hall looks to be a great space, and there's a real opportunity to connect with people in the audience. It's both humbling and thrilling."

Oli Wilson-Dickson meanwhile is one of folk music's most in demand violinists and the third, and newest, member of Alaw is singer and multi-instrumentalist Nia Lynn.

"Playing and recording with Dylan and Oli, you need to be right at the top of your game," says Nia.

"And in a live show, no matter how much we rehearse, they'll always throw an unexpected piece of extra brilliance into the mix.

"My job is to keep them on their toes as well.

"This is going to be a great, great night."

Tickets cost £13 for adults and £11 for children and are available from and the concert begins at 7.30pm.
