Alan Reid and Rob van Sante - 2nd Saturday Community Concert
Doors 6:45, show 7:30pm. Door price is $20 cash or check only.

Alan was a vital member of Scotland's legendary folk group Battlefield Band for 40 years. His groundbreaking keyboard work helped cement the bands reputation as one of the most influential of its generation, while his songs steadily gained admirers. From beautiful ballads to a musical cycle on the life and times of Scots born sailor John Paul Jones Alan has forged a reputation for composing songs with beguiling melodies and strong historical content. He was nominated in the 2009 Scots Tradition Awards in the Composer of the Year category. With the Batties Alan recorded almost 30 albums, won awards and toured all over the world, appearing at festivals in North America, Europe and Australia and New Zealand. His contribution to the bands story has helped enshrine its stature in Scottish culture, confirmed when the band was inaugurated into the Scots Traditional Music Hall of Fame in 2016.

Alan has continued developing his song writing in his partnership with Rob. He has written songs for several drama pieces, one of which was featured in the National Theatre of Scotland's 2014 powerful production Glasgow Girls. He has been a regular teacher of Scots song at the prestigious Swannanoa Gathering in North Carolina and has guested both in Linn Records mammoth 12 CD series of the Complete Songs of Robert Burns and on the CD Life and Times of Scrooge, the solo album of
Tuomas Holopainen of metal band heavyweights Nightwish. The album gained a gold disc in 2014.

As well as all the recordings with Battlefield band and Rob
Alan has released 2 solo albums, The Sunlit Eye and
Recollection, and a songbook Martyrs, Rogues and Worthies.
He has also collaborated with Virginia singer and
multi-instrumentalist Bob Zentz and occasionally performs solo.

Rob van Sante
(vocals, guitars, mandolin, synthesizers, percussion, programming)
Rob was born in the Netherlands but has lived most of his life in England. His mother was a child prodigy pianist so music was an important part of his early life. But Robs first love has always been the guitar. From the 1970s onwards he toured extensively in Europe, North Africa and the Middle East, working with many stalwarts of the U.K. folk and jazz scene. In the early 90s he joined the ranks of Battlefield Band as their fifth member (sound engineer) and continued in that role until 2010.

Acknowledged for his subtle guitar accompaniments and fine
harmony singing Rob is also a noted producer, recording engineer
and session musician. Outside of the duo work he records and plays with veteran singer and songwriter John Conolly, writer of
classic folk standard Fiddlers Green and also with U.S. songwriter Janie Meneely.
