Magic Teapot presents…
Thursday 30th May
plus Weikie, Jinnwoo and Melanie Page
Cult Scottish songwriter, singer and acoustic fingerstyle guitarist Alasdair Roberts will be performing his interpretations of traditional ballads alongside original songs which span a rich career that's seen tours and collaborations with Will Oldham, Bill Callahan, Joanna Newsom, Isobel Campbell and many more.
His new album 'A Wonder Working Stone was released in January and it continues Alasdair’s long-standing love affair and deeply creative interaction with the traditional music of his native Scotland (and beyond), offering an idiosyncratic and nuanced radicalization of that tradition.
The music of Alasdair Roberts straddles the border between contemporary pop music and traditional folk music, drawing new listeners from both sides of the divide, as well as commentators from the scholarly realms.
