Witchseason Weekend 3

One of the other guest singers at Sunday's Incredible String Band tribute show at the Barbican was Scottish folk singer, Alasdair Roberts. He was the second most Scottish person there after the kilted fiddler. He also had the second most impressive beard after Green Gartside, and well ahead of Richard Thompson.

Alasdair took the lead on "Maya" and "My Name Is Death". For me "Maya" did not really work, unlike "My Name Is Death", which was a perfect match between singer and song.

Here are two tracks from his 2007 CD "Amber Gatherers": "Waxwing" and "River Rhine".

Here is a clip of him performing "Cruel War". Apologies for the lack of visual stimulation.
