Alasdair Roberts (born 8 August 1977) is a Scottish folk musician. He released a number of albums under the name Appendix Out and, following the 2001 album The Night Is Advancing, under his own name. Roberts is also known for his frequent collaborations with other musicians and writers, as well as for being a member of the folk supergroup The Furrow Collective.

Album by Alasdair Roberts. Where Twines the Path. I Had a Kiss of the King's Hand. The Cruel War. Let Me Lie and Bleed Awhile. The Old Men of the Shells.

On the Amber Gatherers, Roberts balances regional folk songs with his own self-penned odes to heartache, death and drink, successfully blurring the line between the two like a young Nic Jones or Martin Carthy. A full band is employed this time around, and their lightly brushed drums, fingerpicked guitars, accordions, and backing vocals wrap themselves around Roberts' careful phrasing like a winter coat.

Listen closely to the tail end of the first verse of Alasdair Roberts' "Where Twines the Path" and you can hear something that shouldn't be there: An empty promise. When the map and fact mismatch, I will burn the map," claims Roberts above an acoustic guitar, sounding like a perfect gentleman but lying like a playboy. Roberts is arguing for self-reliance and adventure, vouching for a little transcendental wisdom in a trance-happy world. This could be an anthem.
