Thursday 2nd - The Paul McKenna Band

“The best band of their generation” (The Living Tradition)

“A band with the potential to dominate the Scottish/Irish traditional scene for the next twenty years” (Fatea Magazine)


Scotland’s Paul McKenna has long been ranked among our finest younger singers and songwriters, armed with a powerful yet intensely emotive voice and passionate social conscience, often expressed through his songs, a combination that’s brought frequent comparisons to the great Dick Gaughan. 


He and his band – comprising Robbie Greig (fiddle), Conal McDonagh (pipes/whistles), Conor Markey (banjo/ bouzouki/mandolin) and Ewan Baird (percussion) – draw on both Scottish and Irish roots, in a dynamic, full-bodied array of original and traditional material, along with songs by like-minded authors including Peggy Seeger, Alistair Hulett and Jim Reid. Following 2016’s tenth anniversary release Paths That Wind, they’re currently at work on their fifth album.

Please note door/start time is subject to change.

The Return of Full Capacity Shows at Alexander's from 19th July 2021...

The government have now confirmed that full capacity live shows can return in cultural spaces from 19th July. This is incredible news and extremely welcome. However, here at Alexander's we recognise that COVID-19 has not gone away. Therefore, we wanted to let you know that if we all work together you can come back and experience some great live shows whilst keeping as safe as possible.

What we are doing:
- Our ventilation system will be in operation whenever the venue is open, and we will keep a good fresh air supply into the venue. This means we can achieve a higher number of air cycles per hour than what is currently being deemed as excellent for reducing airborne pathogens.
- Additional ventilation has been installed in our toilets.
- UV-C air sterilisation units have been installed and will be in operation whenever we are open.
- Deep cleaning of the venue will take place when we are closed, and extra cleaning checks will be performed when we are open.
- All our cleaning products are Covid-19 safe.
- There will be a Covid-19 cleansing spray used once per day when the venue is closed. This is proven to kill the virus on surfaces for up to 48 hours.
- Providing hand sanitiser at every entrance.
- Fully disinfecting all microphones and stands after use and encouraging performers to bring their own wherever possible.

What you can do:
- Under no circumstances should you attend the venue if you feel you have any Covid-19 related symptoms or think you have come into contact with someone who has.
- Isolate and get tested whenever necessary.
- Wear a mask if you wish to. We will not be enforcing mask wearing but we certainly encourage individual choice in this instance.
- Test regularly and before attending any events.
- Get vaccinated as and when you're able.
- For ticketed events please do not print your tickets but instead show us your tickets on your phone.
- Reduce the use of cash where possible.
- Wash your hands regularly and use the hand sanitising stations.
- Support us in keeping the windows and doors either open or closed as notified by our staff.
- Utilise our outside spaces before and after shows and even in the break.

To be clear we are no longer enforcing any of these rules but in the interests of being kind and mindful of others please do all you can to keep yourselves and others safe.

There is also a lot going on behind the scenes so please do be polite and respectful to our staff.
