Ian Robertson Acoustic Music


Ian Robertson has been around the music scene, performing live for almost two decades. After a stint of playing in Germany & Spain in 2007/8 he returned home to Edinburgh playing both solo and accompanied by other musicians. After meeting Gordon 'Oz' Kingsford-Smith, a seasoned bass player with some 45 years experience, Robertson's Court was born. Eight years on they are still entertaining in and around Edinburgh and the Lothians.


Ian still performs as a soloist and plays a blend of traditional & contemporary folk mixed with old classics and a bit of country thrown in. His main forte is performing other artists songs however he does delve into songwriting and this brings his storytelling side to the fore.


With his love of music you are always assured of a performance that comes from the heart.

Earthy and hearty rhythms with haunting melodies of yearning... a great feast of honest and well-constructed music from Ian Robertson... So good!

You can't beat the classic Scottish folk sound with a stick.. and it is alive and well in Ian Robertson's recordings! Five generations removed am I, and Ian suddenly makes me long for a home I've never known
