Alasdair Roberts & James Green: Plaint of Lapwing + Elle Osborne

The Dentist and Muckle Mouth are pleased to present

Alasdair Roberts & James Green

We are lucky to have Scottish folk singer Alasdair Roberts and multi-instrumentalist James Green of The Big Eyes Family Players, following the release of Plaint of Lapwing LP, their collaborative recording project; two years in the making and exquisitely materialised by Clay Pipe Music. 

The pair will present, for the first time, the live incarnation of their playfully crafted, idiosyncratic music, which weaves sources as seemingly disparate as Bavarian traditional tunes, Greek mythology and 70's folk-rock, mostly accompanied by the airy melodies of Green's harmoniflute, a 19th century French instrument somewhere between a harmonium and an accordion. 

Elle Osborne

Singer and fiddler Elle Osborne was raised amongst folk singers on the North Sea Coast of Lincolnshire. Inspired by the language and beauty of English folksong, Elle performs her own songs, as well as re-interpretations of traditional songs (many of which she nicked from her Dad). The Wire said, "There is a certain edge of the world starkness to her voice that blends magically with her English folk roots..." 

Her stunning fourth album “It’s Not Your Gold Shall Me Entice”, features recurring collaborators Alasdair Roberts, Alex Neilson, and Mike Hastings of Trembling Bells.
