Scottish songwriter Alasdair Roberts is in town: playing Upstairs in Dolan's to be exact. Roberts has been writing quality folk-tinged songs for the best part of fifteen years ago, and his only previous Limerick visit that I can recall was Upstairs in Costello's back around April 2002. At that time, Alasdair was performing as Appendix Out. The show tonight should be lovely, and expect songs about fair maidens rolling about the hills and whatnot. His most recent album 'The Amberer Gatherers', released last year, was his sixth for Drag City.
Doors are down for 8pm, and admission is €8.
In the meantime, here's a video for the song 'River Rhine'
