BATTLEFIELD BAND - FOUNDRY HALL'S 5TH BIRTHDAY PARTY
Celebrate Foundry Hall's 5th Birthday with cake, free drinks & refreshments, and entertainment by the 2011 Scottish Folk Band of the Year!
A bedrock of talent for over four decades, Battlefield Band continue to lead the way for Scotland with their inspired fusion of ancient and modern traditional music and song. Refusing to be limited musically by suffocating antiquarianism, or musical fashions, they have mixed the old songs and music with a new self-penned repertoire, all played on a fusion of ancient and modern instruments - bagpipes, fiddle, synthesiser, guitar, flutes, bodhran and accordion. Scotland's great flagship band are in peak form: their new album "Line-up" finds them fresh & invigorated, and illustrates yet again that they are among the most relevant contemporary composers and interpreters of Celtic music today.
* FOUNDRY HALL MEMBER EXCLUSIVE... Join us before the show for a complimentary haggis dinner with the Battlefield Band! (limited seating - RSVP requested)
Named after the Glasgow suburb of Battlefield, where the group was formed by four student friends in 1969, they have now been on the world's roads for over 40 years, distilling their own unique form of the Scottish spirit and bottling it in concert and onto disc. They've performed in Germany, Hong Kong, Australia, New Zealand, Italy, Austria, Switzerland, Holland, Syria, Jordan, India, Sri Lanka, Egypt, U.S.A., Canada, Uzbekistan, China and the U.K; breaking down barriers and pioneering many new directions which others have followed. Angry, joyful, raucous, contemplative, their music is most importantly - accessible to all.
