Alistair Anderson

Alistair continues to find inspiration from the traditional music, landscape and the people of Northumberland and the Borders. Alongside the older melodies unearthed from the personal tune books of musicians dating back as far as the 1600s and the huge wealth of music he learnt from his great mentors, Joe Hutton, Will Taylor and Will Atkinson, his own compositions build on those traditions. Anderson’s latest CD “Hethpool Linn” received good reviews including this comment from Bright Young Folk “It’s a double CD…an absolute gem to have in your collection. Despite recently turning 75 Anderson proves once again that he is one of those geniuses that happen a few times in each generation, he will forever be a great inspiration to anyone who comes close to this genre.”
