Alistair is a fine traditional singer. He was a finalist in the BBC Radio Scotland ‘Young Traditional Musician Of The Year’ Award in both 2011 and 2012, and won the Traditional Music And Song Association’s ‘Young Singer Of Merit’ award the same year. Alistair has already appeared at many folk clubs and festivals in the UK and his songs have been aired on several Radio Scotland programmes.

Born in Strathblane, surrounded by beautiful countryside and the Campsie Hills, Alistair now lives in Glasgow. His family encouraged a young boy’s love of music but especially his grandparents who nurtured an interest in traditional song. The result is Alistair has been singing ever since he can remember and traditional song has become a way of life for him.

He loves everything about singing: telling stories, expressing himself and being able to reflect on history and make it relevant to the present day, while relishing the opportunity to touch and connect with an audience. Alistair is also anxious to present Scots singing to a younger generation and banish the typical stereotype of Scots song - less about tartan and heather and more about ballads.

Alistair’s debut album was produced, engineered and mixed by Mattie Foulds at Mobile With A Home Studios and mastered by Stuart Hamilton at Castlesound Studios. The session musicians are friends Aly Macrae (various instruments including piano, fiddle and mandolin), Steven Polwart (guitars) and Inge Thomson (backing vocals).

We believe this is an outstanding young singer with huge potential.

“Wonderfully characterful, minutely-nuanced Scots singing…” (The Scotsman)

“The young Glasgow singer Alistair Ogilvy is definitely a talent to watch…” (Sue Wilson, The Scotsman)

“Alistair Ogilvy was a revelation - what a beautifully melodic voice that laddie has, coupled with a real understanding of what he is singing…” (Sheena Wellington)

See Alistair featured on the BBC Celtic Connections website.
