Features Song Lyrics for Alasdair Roberts's The Amber Gatherers album. Alasdair Roberts - The Amber Gatherers Album Lyrics. 1. Riddle Me This Lyrics.

On the Amber Gatherers, Roberts balances regional folk songs with his own self-penned odes to heartache, death and drink, successfully blurring the line between the two like a young Nic Jones or Martin Carthy. A full band is employed this time around, and their lightly brushed drums, fingerpicked guitars, accordions, and backing vocals wrap themselves around Roberts' careful phrasing like a winter coat.
