The band are joined by twelve special guests, sharing music shared by the Scottish and Irish traditions.

Scotland and Ireland are separated by twelve miles of water at their nearest point, so it's not surprising that their cultures have begged, borrowed (and maybe even stolen) much from each other over the centuries.

The band and friends explore and play the music and songs shared by these two vibrant cultures.

Our traditions are in safe hands!

"...the cutting edge of modern Scottish folk music …authentic and refreshing …Battlefield Band's melody driven instincts are technically flawless and fabulously entertaining." Piping Today, Celtic Connections.
