Critically-acclaimed Scottish musician Alasdair Roberts will be playing a solo gig in Falmouth in July.

Primarily a guitarist and singer, Alasdair is known and respected as an interpreter of traditional songs and ballads, and also regarded as one of Scotland’s finest songwriters.

For this year’s concerts, Alasdair will draw on hits and lesser-known gems from his extensive back catalogue, as well as previewing songs from his forthcoming full-length collection of traditional material drawn largely from Scots tradition, Painted Rooms, due for release in early 2023 on Drag City Records.

Born in Germany and raised in central Scotland, Alasdair Roberts is a Glasgow-based musician – primarily a songwriter, singer, guitarist and interpreter of traditional songs.

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 of his music via Drag City Records over the past 25 years, featuring both self-written material and interpretations of the traditional song of Scotland and beyond.

He enjoys a wide range of collaborations and has toured extensively both in the UK and worldwide both solo and with various musical companions.

Alasdair’s most recent album release is The Old Fabled River (2021), recorded in collaboration with the Norwegian group Völvur. Early 2023 will see the release of a new solo album, a collection of traditional songs and ballads drawn largely from Scots tradition entitled Painted Rooms.

Alasdair play The Cornish Bank on July 7. For tickets see the venue's Facebook page.
