SCOTLAND'S FLAGSHIP BAND
Recently awarded 'Scottish Folk Band of the Year' and previously 'Best Live Act' at the Scots Trad Music Awards, Battlefield Band has been an ever-evolving bedrock of traditional music and talent for over forty years, and is rightly regarded as the great flagship of the Scottish traditional music scene.
Founded in 1969 and named after the Battlefield area of Glasgow, the band continues to tour throughout the world, playing to audiences in Europe, Australia and New Zealand, Asia, the Middle East, Canada and the USA.
Under the banner 'Forward With Scotland's Past', the group continues to lead the way for Scotland with its inspired, unique and authentic fusion of ancient and modern traditional music and song. Over the years, new members have brought new ideas, music, instruments, voices, attitudes and influences, ensuring continued creativity, freshness, enthusiasm and critical acclaim. The latest recruit, young multi-instrumentalist Ewen Henderson, is an outstanding talent schooled by some of the masters of the genre, who has quickly established himself within a band of superb musicians.
Serious about the music, this band's enjoyment in playing is obvious and infectious as they harness the great living traditions of Scotland & the Celtic nations to involve and entertain their audiences.
"A wondrous perfectly paced display by musicians firmly in command of their art... the band's chemistry at this point is uncanny ... the best Battlefield Band in years" -The Washington Post
