The internationally-travelled and regularly-reinvented Scottish/Irish traditional quartet.

One of the great institutions of the Scottish music scene - a bedrock of music and talent for over four decades, Battlefield Band continue to lead the way with their inspired fusion of ancient and modern traditional music and song.

Battlefield Band's aptitude for instrumental colour, nuance, expression and internal dynamics is, if anything, sharper than ever and these recordings showcase Scotland's great flagship band in peak form. Fiery instrumentals, plaintive ballads and songs of social history find them fresh, invigorated, and illustrate yet again that they are among the most relevant contemporary composers and interpreters of Celtic music today, capable even of adding a Scottish twist to an Otis Redding soul classic.

Always evolving, the latest group line-up, which has been received with great acclaim on their US, Canadian and UK tours, finds Battlefield Band yet again moving on to a new, exciting period in their musical development, while building on the solid foundations that have always been key to their success.

The latest recruit to the group, multi-instrumentalist Ewan Henderson, hails from the Highlands of Scotland. A superb talent, schooled by some of the masters of the genre, Ewan has quickly established himself as a strong force within a band of supremely capable musicians who look forward to introducing him to their worldwide audience.

Mike Katz (bagpipes, whistles, bouzouki, guitar, bass, vocals), Alasdair White (fiddle, whistle, bouzouki, bagpipes), Sean O'Donnell (vocals, guitar, cittern) and Ewan Henderson (fiddle, bagpipes, vocals, piano).

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

Battlefield Band awarded 'Scottish Folk Band of the Year' at MG ALBA Scots Trad Music Awards 2011
