Alasdair Roberts has been making the best in modern traditional records since 2003 - a run of seven stellar albums featuring songs both ancient and new, arranged to meet his 21st century standards! Earlier this year, as his wont, he delivered the latest - this time, an incredible album of sparse and spare songs. That self-titled album has left an enduring mark in our hearts' ears ever since. His music is very much concerned with the world, as seen from his perch in Glasgow, Scotland - but having spent the first part of the year touring the UK exclusively, the changing seasons signal a much-desired change in pattern for our Alasdair. Commencing October 2nd, Alasdair Roberts marches off to the European continent for his first headlining tour there in an age, at least! Fittingly, the man walks alone: Ali is touring solo, allowing the gentle strength and firm hands of his to guide the complex harmonies of songs from throughout his songbook, with melodies picked in fashion seldom heard in the low countries, save for perhaps the intentional melodicism of Monk. People! Welcome Alasdair into your aural home - feed yourself with his song, as he is "In Dispraise of Hunger" and join him at the following exclusive engagements starting next week!
