Glasgow-based singer and guitarist Alasdair Roberts is touring the UK in spring 2023 in support of his new solo album Grief in the Kitchen and Mirth in the Hall, a collection of twelve traditional songs and ballads from Scotland and beyond, delivered in his inimitable style.

Acclaimed by Folk Radio UK as ‘one of our most talented, important and relevant songwriters and song-adapters’, Alasdair has released several critically-acclaimed albums via Drag City Records over the past two decades. They have alternated between collections of his own idiosyncratic and evocative compositions, and fresh interpretations of traditional songs and ballads. Although a keen collaborator, Alasdair will be touring entirely solo, presenting material from the new album as well as from his extensive back catalogue in an intimate, stripped-down setting.

In addition to his solo career, Alasdair plays in the groups Furrow Collective, Current 93 and Green Ribbons and has toured extensively both in the UK and worldwide, solo and with various musical companions.
