Alasdair Roberts Trio
Thu 27 Sep, 8pm
Alasdair Roberts is a Scottish singer, guitarist, interpreter of traditional songs and writer of new songs based in Glasgow, Scotland. Since 1996 he has worked with Drag City Records of Chicago, releasing three albums of original material under the name Appendix Out as well as five albums under his own name, featuring both original and traditional material. In that time, he has worked with a wide variety of collaborators from many different musical and artistic backgrounds.
Throughout his musical career, Alasdair has toured widely in the UK, Europe, North America and Australia in both solo and band configurations, and will continue to do so to promote 'Too Long In This Condition.' Since completing that record (with an ensemble of fine fellow musicians including Alastair Caplin, Shane Connolly, Tom Crossley, Christine Hanson, Robert Hubbert, Bill Lowman, Emily Portman and Ben Reynolds), Alasdair has been working on writing and arranging new non-traditional song material, with a view to a future release, mostly likely towards the end of 2011.
