Under the banner "Forward With Scotland's Past," Battlefield Band plays Scottish music of rare passion and joy. Inspired by their rich heritage of Celtic music and fired by the strength of today's Scottish Cultural scene (which they themselves have done much to create and fuel), Battlefield Band mixes the old songs with new self-penned material, and perform them on a unique fusion of ancient and modern instruments—bagpipe, fiddle, synthesiser, guitar, cittern, flute, bodhran and accordion.
This tour is a bittersweet one for longtime fans as founding member Alan Reid, keyboardist for the ensemble's entire 30 year history, will be leaving Battlefield Band at the end of 2010.
