About the event

Alasdair Roberts Autumn Tour 2023

Glasgow-based singer and guitarist Alasdair Roberts is touring in Scotland and England in autumn 2023, in support of his most recent solo album Grief in the Kitchen and Mirth in the Hall.

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. These have alternated between collections of his own idiosyncratic and evocative compositions, and inimitably fresh interpretations of traditional material. Alasdair will be touring entirely solo, presenting material from the new album (a collection of twelve traditional songs and ballads from Scotland and beyond) 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 and Current 93, and has toured extensively both in the UK and worldwide, solo and with various musical companions.

Press quotes for Alasdair Roberts’ Grief in the Kitchen and Mirth in the Hall:

“Alasdair Roberts’ performances are musically exquisite, while his singing has never sounded so emotionally charged. The quality of Roberts’ music is astoundingly high, and nearly three decades into his career, that shows no sign of letting up.” – Thomas Blake, Folk Radio UK


“At its most potent [Grief in the Kitchen and Mirth in the Hall is] incantatory in effect… deeply hypnotic… elsewhere Roberts’s guitar is spindle-shanked and almost preternaturally fluid. Deep and heartbreaking.” – Jon Dale, Uncut
