Event

The Battlefield Band
Inspired by their rich heritage of Celtic music and fired by the strength and vibrancy of today's Scottish cultural scene which they have done much to create and fuel, The Battlefield Band has led and been at the forefront of a great revival in Scottish music. 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.

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.

"...a wondrous, perfectly paced display by musicians firmly in command of their art...." - Buzz McClain, The Washington Post

"Even an old-fashioned celtic waltz proved rythmically contagious once the renowned quartet pushed the tune into overdrive, arguably its favourite gear" - Mike Joyce, The Washington Post

Band Members: Sean O'Donnell, Alasdair White, Ewen Henderson, and Mike Katz
