| at the courtyard | presents Robin Auld
Roots / blues music with African and calypso flavours from Southern African singer, guitarist and writer.
Slide guitar, harmonica, African folk, blues, calypso and soul vocals all feature in the fresh sound of Zambian- born Robin Auld.
He has released over 20 albums with several radio hits in South Africa, including a number one. He has performed and recorded in London, New York, Nashville, San Francisco, Hamburg and a whole bunch of places in between. Having worked with both majors and independents, he now releases albums through his own label, Free Lunch which has recently struck a partnership with Next/Orchard music for the new album.
He is also the author of a book, Tight Lines, and a poetry / short story collection entitled Kelp.
Based in Cape Town, he tours home and abroad performing both solo acoustic shows and electric gigs with a 3 piece line-up."A genuine and unaffected flowing together of cultural strands ... and, unlike a lot of singer-songwriters you can, hell you should, play this loud."
"Sunkissed and generous of melody".
Whisperin' and hollerin' Ireland.
"Meltdown, ambient and sublime".
"Damn fine tunes, go buy it."
