NOTES
Alistair is a UK/Irish Folk Singer/Songwriter, his new album GROUNDED is essentially folk root music merged with an acoustic guitar style that hints of Spanish, Jazz, Blues and Acoustic Rock. All songs are self composed and expose a storytelling that is of a spiritual, political, personal and poetic nature. Since recording this album people have asked me "How to Write a Song" ? All I do is follow a formula. A good chord progression in a fixed Key. A good melody. A good story telling Lyric.

Irish Traditional Music Collectors

This New "Irish Traditional Music Release Volume 1" by Alistair Sherwood features tunes from Ireland's distinguished Trad Catolag. Both Songs Nancy Spain and The Cavan Girl are sung by Alistair to an arpeggiated chordal harmonic backdrop performed on guitar. Irish tunes are played on Guitar and Ukulele with varied accompainment.

Some would be described as Celtic/ Spiritual in music, while others are in the treasury of Transatlantic Sessions. Alistair says "I wanted to explore the deep soul of these melodies and channel their charms into the margins of gradualism, unlike a time I may have flogged them to the finish line, fulled with the froth of ten pints. I guess I played them with the might of Minimalism. As a purist you may disagree with the tempo but that's the way the felt to me :-)"
