Sheffield-based folk & blues musician playing a mixture of original and traditional finger-picked material
Alastair Gordon started performing original material on the Berlin open mic scene in his late teens. Since then, his voice has been shaped into a rich baritone through years of busking and a creative approach to guitar and harmonica have been shaped by adventurous listening habits. The clearest influences include John Martyn, Charlie Parr and The Felice Brothers. Lyrical content often tackles unconventional subject matter and reflects a life split between South Yorkshire and North Saxony. He has toured across Europe and performed alongside international artists including Fern Maddie, Marty O'reily, Jim Ghedi, Alabaster de Plume, Gwenifer Raymond and The Brothers Gillespie.
"Off kilter quirky baritone - that's a very difficult style to pull off. Alastair absolutely nails it." Christian Carlisle, BBC Sheffield.
