Alistair Brown: Songs and Stories
Alistair Brown, world-travelled St Ives based Scottish folk singer and musician, returns to the St Ives Arts Club following his 2019 sell-out performance.
Born in Scotland and for many years resident in St Ives, Alistair has travelled the world with his  folk songs and stories. Audiences at concerts and festivals across North America, Australia, New Zealand and the UK have responded enthusiastically to his performances, covering the field from comic ditties, songs of struggle (usually unsuccessful) against temptation, odes to conviviality and songs of unashamed sentimentality, to outrageously funny stories from a master of the art.
