Alasdair Roberts is a Glasgow-based musician – primarily a singer and guitarist – born in Germany and raised in central Scotland. Acclaimed by Folk Radio UK as 'one of our most talented, important and relevant songwriters and song-adapters', he has released several critically acclaimed albums of his music via Drag City Records over the past two decades.
Alasdair draws upon the traditional song and music culture of Scotland, and further afield, to create both his own idiosyncratic and evocative compositions as well as fresh interpretations of folk songs and narrative ballads. His most recent album is The Old Fabled River (2021), recorded in collaboration with the Norwegian group Völvur; it features four new self-written songs as well as both Scottish and Norwegian traditional songs.
Alasdair enjoys a wide range of collaborations with fellow musicians, as well as with artists from other disciplines. He plays in the groups Furrow Collective, Current 93 and Green Gibbons and has toured extensively both in the UK and worldwide, both solo and with various musical companions.

SARAH JANE SCOUTEN
Four-time Canadian Folk Music Award nominee, Sarah Jane Scouten's music delivers a signature mix of vintage folk and country music, with modern sounds and subjects. An ever expanding palette brings a freshness to her brand of ambient indie Americana -- or "space-country" as she likes to call it. It's as relevant to today as it is rooted in the music of her forebears. Touring throughout North America and Europe, this seasoned performer boasts a top-notch live band and considerable acclaim for her last four full-length albums.
