Alasdair is one of those singers who just could not possibly be mistaken for anybody else, having his own very individual style. We are thrilled to have Alasdair back at the Goose after his last sell out performance .

Based in Scotland, he released his first solo album of traditional songs, "The Crook of my Arm", in 2001. His second album "Farewell Sorrow" was one of the Observer's top albums of the year (note - that's top albums, not top folk albums!) and consists of beautiful self-written songs which are totally personal yet clearly influenced by the folk tradition.

Alasdair's next album, "No Earthly Man", was a collection of traditional British ballads and his fourth, "The Amber Gatherers" was released in 2007.

fRoots said of his latest album, released earlier this year: "Spoils is back to his unyieldingly scary bestů it is a beautiful, disquieting, comic, twisted, bizarre, riveting masterpiece."

support will be from the very excellent Spoono and also Susan Wheeler
