I am very excited to welcome you to my new website! Here you will find all sorts of information about my varied musical activities, together with details of past and future projects.

This is the first time that the many different facets of my musical life have been brought together – and my hope is that those who know me from one aspect will now get a broader picture of who I am, what else I do and how and why I do it! If you would like any more information on my activities check out the Notes by Alasdair page or get in touch, and if you’ve been to one of my recent performances then please take a moment to fill in the feedback page – you can even send in your photos!
