April 8 @ 7:30 pm BST£20
Alasdair Roberts is a Glasgow-based musician – primarily a singer and guitarist – born in Germany and raised in central Scotland. Acclaimed by Folk Radio UK as ‘one of our most talented, important and relevant songwriters and song-adapters’, he has released several critically-acclaimed albums via Drag City Records over the past two decades.
Alasdair draws upon the traditional song and music culture of Scotland and further afield to create both his own idiosyncratic and evocative compositions, as well as fresh interpretations of folk songs and narrative ballads. His most recent album The Old Fabled River (2021) was recorded in collaboration with the Norwegian group Völvur; it features four new self-written songs as well as both Scottish and Norwegian traditional songs.
Alasdair enjoys a wide range of collaborations with fellow musicians, as well as with artists from other disciplines. He plays in the groups Furrow Collective, Current 93, and Green Ribbons and has toured extensively both in the UK and worldwide, both solo and with various musical companions.
