RM Hubbert is releasing another album with a variety of collaborators, including Alasdair.
In this interview with Jinnwoo, he discloses how he approached Alasdair and others to invite them to collaborate.
Nothing like amber, in fact. But here we collect the work of Alasdair Roberts, especially the droppings and chaff that don't get mentioned on his official site — this is a remora to that turtle.

Many thanks to Chrissie for sharing these pictures and words (and apologies for taking so long to pass them on).
What a wonderful hour I spent at the Aberdeen May Festival, held at Aberdeen University on 10th May. It was truly worth the near 8 hours travelling up and down from Edinburgh. Much as I love the album, a vocal and guitar rendition was quite exquisite and so eerie. I was rapt. Robin introduced each song with a brief explanation of it’s content, and also did the short poem “Well of Youth”. He didn’t tackle the much longer “Leaving St Kilda” though. Alasdair was in wonderful voice and his guitar playing so beautiful. To close the show, he did a medley consisting of the traditional ballad, “The Baron O Brackley”, which segued into “In Dispraise of Hunger”.
