Autumn 2018 will see acclaimed Scottish singer Alasdair Roberts team up with sonic provocateur Amble Skuse and keyboard wizard David McGuinness to take their recent album What News (Drag City Records) out on the road.

Featuring eight interpretations of old Scots ballads – muckle sangs –  arranged for voice, piano and electronics, the critically lauded What News is Roberts’ fourth such album-length foray into traditional song, informed by archival researches and steeped in a deep respect for the singers of Scotland’s past.  However, the idiosyncratic, forward-thinking arrangements wrought by his collaborators – pianist David McGuinness (on a selection of rare keyboard instruments) and electronic musician Amble Skuse (on processing and sonics) – make this album genuinely pioneering and thoroughly unique.

Tickets: £14 (concessions £12)
