Alastair is a member of Albert favourites band Solana, and is here tonight on his solo project. He plays on the streets a lot, and on stages when people let him. IHe likes to focus on folk music from various traditions and write songs heavily influenced by it, but biggest influences are Mississippi John Hurt, Bessie Smith, Charlie Parr, Leonard Cohen, Dave Van Ronk, Richard Thompson, Blind Blake, Blind Willie Mctell, Joanna Newsome …. and of course all the great people you see singing in pubs. He may be slipping in the odd cover here and there too. Shhhhhh
