Alasdair Roberts September 2019 saw the release of The Fiery Margin, the latest album from prolific cult Scottish folk singer Alasdair Roberts. Released by Drag City Records and featuring ten of his characteristically idiosyncratic self-written songs and realised with a wonderful supporting cast of musicians including Ailbhe Nic Oireachtaigh (viola), Alex Neilson (percussion) and Stevie Jones (bass, piano) among others, Common Clay was lovingly recorded by Luigi Pasquini at Anchor Lane Studios, Glasgow.
As a collection of original material, the album stands in contrast to Roberts’ recent experiments in reimagining traditional Scots ballads with piano/electronic accompaniment on the 2018 album What News (with Amble Skuse and David McGuinness). However, despite the fact that all of the material is original the influence of centuries of song and musical tradition from Scotland and beyond is nevertheless evident throughout, in combination with a thoroughly open and forward-thinking approach.
This evening Alasdair will offer up the uncommon songs of The Fiery Margin for your delectation in a stripped down solo performance.
“One of our most talented, important and relevant songwriters and song-adapters.” (Folk Radio UK)
“Quietly escalating towards Scottish national treasure status” (Mojo)
“An artist in consummate control of his art” (Uncut)
