Alasdair Roberts - No Earthly Man (2005)


For fans of: Richard Youngs, Josephine Foster, Richard & Linda Thompson

Alasdair Roberts is a Scottish folk singer who writes stripped-down songs that are subtle and beautiful. This set of songs is haunting and intense at times with a variety of instruments coming into the mix and great production to do it all justice. The overall theme here is one of loss, and the tales told keep me interested and attent the whole time. The synthesis of traditional song and modern sound is a winner. - Matthew Foster
