"What the internationally renowned Irish band, The Chieftains, have done for traditional Irish music, Battlefield Band is doing for the music of Scotland." (BILLBOARD)

Under the banner "Forward with Scotland's Past," Battlefield Band has been a bedrock of talent for over four decades, and continues to lead the way for Scotland with their inspired fusion of ancient and modern traditional music and song.

Scotland's great flagship band is composed of musicians that others measure themselves against, and the band's new album "Line-up" finds them fresh and invigorated, illustrating once again that they are among the most relevant contemporary composers and interpreters of Celtic music today.

Founded by a group of friends in 1969 and named after the Battlefield area of Glasgow, the band has now been touring and performing throughout the world for over forty years, playing to audiences in Europe, Australia and New Zealand, Asia, the Middle East and Canada, as well as more than 60 cities annually in the United States. Ever evolving, over the years new members have brought with them new ideas, music, instruments, attitudes and influences, leading to continued creativity, freshness and enthusiasm. The new line-up includes young multi-instrumentalist Ewen Henderson, and has been received with great acclaim on their latest US, Canadian, and UK tours.

MIKE KATZ
(Highland Bagpipes/Small Pipes/Whistles/Bouzouki/Guitar/Bass)
A superb piper from an early age and a highly versatile all-around musician with eclectic influences, Mike joined Battlefield Band in late 1997 and has contributed massively to the music and accessibility of the group.

ALASDAIR WHITE
(Fiddle/Whistle/Bouzouki/Highland and Small Pipes)
Alasdair comes from the Isle of Lewis, one of the Gaelic speaking Outer Hebrides islands where music and culture remain strong daily forces. An award-winning fiddler from an early age, he joined Battlefield Band at the age of 18. He has toured the world several times over, while firmly establishing himself as a unique talent & virtuoso fiddle player.

SEAN O'DONNELL
(Vocals/Guitar)
A highly accomplished guitarist and singer, Sean was born in Derry, Northern Ireland. He moved to Scotland in 1996, and quickly became involved in the music scene. He joined Battlefield Band in 2005 and has become a keystone of the group's sound. His soulful vocals and driving rhythmic guitar add much to the mix.

EWEN HENDERSON
(Fiddle/Highland Bagpipes/Small Pipes/Vocals/Piano)
The latest recruit to the group, Ewen hails from the Scottish West Highland town of Fort William, and has been naturally steeped in the traditional music, Gaelic language, and culture of the area. He started learning the fiddle at the age of five, and has since mastered an impressive array of instruments, having had the privilege of being taught by many of the true masters of West Highland traditional music.
