The enigmatic songwriter Mike Scott, “madman or genius, depending on your point of view,” (Record Collector Magazine) has explored many sounds and styles through THE WATERBOYS, his principle vehicle since 1983, but Celtic folk rock of burning intensity remains at the center. The band’s latest project is An Appointment with Mr. Yeats, music set to the words of Ireland’s greatest lyric poet. Scott’s fellow Scot ALASDAIR ROBERTS, a sometime collaborator with Will Oldham, infuses his songs “with the enduring melodies and lyrical twists of ancient folk music.” (The Guardian UK)
