'Outstanding Exemplary Original' - Purbeck Folk Festival
Alex Roberts is an artist who represents all the best aspects of the songwriter’s craft. A casual observer of the world that surrounds him, he draws on its roots, it’s past and present to tell stories in the age-old tradition, a balladeer, poet and a writer of impressively prolific output, with six studio albums released Roberts shows little sign of slowing down.
His is a craft well learned, and invested with depths of emotion and empathy that are unique. Alex blends genres from baroque to blues, with a warm soulful voice, finger-style acoustic guitar, some fine lapsteel playing, bouzouki, and a stompbox to boot all combined for a spellbinding performance.
