Banna Ceoil úrnua spleodrach iad LAS atá deanta suas de chúigear ban atá aitheanta i saol an cheoil traidisiúnta ceilteach. Pléann a gcuid ceoil le na nascanna coitianta cultúrtha atá idir ceol, damhsa agus amhránaíocht na na hÉireann agus na hAlbain ar bhealach bríomhar, beoga. Seinneann siad ceol spleodrach ar réimse uirlisí ina measc fidil, bosca ceoil, méarchlár, giotar, feadógaí, bosca shruti, chomh maith le amhráin álainn Gaeilge/gaidhlig agus damhsa ar an sean-nós as an dá thír.
Tá gach ball don ghrúpa seo aitheanta as a ceol féin agus sheinn siad ag féiltí ar fud na cruinne. Tá LAS i ndiaidh a bheith ar camchuairt in Éireann agus san Albain. Chomh maith le sin chas siad ag féiltí ar nós Celtic Connections, Scoil Samhraidh Mhic Reachtain agus Féile na Gealaí. Freisin, bhí siad le feiceáil ar FleadhTV 2017, clár a raibh lucht féachana 1.25 milliúin aige, Trad ar Fad! (BBCNI),‘SEIRM’ (BBC Alba) agus Celtic Connections (TG4), a bheidh ar BBC Alba agus TG4 agus ghlac siad páirt i sraith nua Raidió ‘An Seisiún’ a bheidh ar Raidió na Gaeltachta i 2018 agus d’eisigh siad EP nua ‘LAS’ i 2017.
LAS (meaning ignite) are an exciting new five piece, featuring leading players from the contemporary Celtic music scene. They explore Scotland & Ireland’s shared cultural links through exhilarating dance/music collaborations and songs in both Scottish Gàidhlig and Irish. Featuring an electrifying musical blend of fiddle, button accordion, keyboard, guitar, whistles and shruti box, they combine lively music numbers with beautifully arranged Scottish Gàidhlig/Irish language songs and Scottish stepdance/sean-nós dance routines. Their musical and vocal prowess, combined with an innate understanding of the traditionally rooted core of the music that they perform, makes them a new force worth experiencing.
All five members of LAS are well established performers in their own right and have played at festivals and venues all over the world. As LAS, they have successfully toured both Scotland and Ireland, in addition to performing at Celtic Connections, Scotland and Féile na Gealaí, Ireland. They are also no stranger to television, with their appearance on this year’s Fleadh TV being watched by over 1/4 million viewers. They also featured on the popular TV series Trad ar Fad on BBC NI,with appearances on Seirm (BBC Alba) and Celtic Connections (TG4) scheduled for later this year. LAS also launched their self-titled debut EP in April 2017 and the recording features their unique take on the traditional arts in Ireland and Scotland; unifying the two traditions and showcasing the music, song and dance.
