Alasdair White is already well known as Battlefield Band’s virtuoso fiddle player - An Clàr Geal (The White Album) is his first solo album.

In previous years, his musicianship and tunewriting have had a great influence on the band's repertoire and continuing success, and playing with Battlefield Band has given him the wider audience that his music deserves.

Alasdair grew up on the Isle of Lewis, in Scotland’s Outer Hebrides, where Gaelic language and music remain important influences on the culture of the Islands and Scotland in general. He plays in what might be called a 'North-west' Scottish style, heavily derived from the piping tradition.

Alasdair plays fiddle and whistles on this album and is also joined by Aaron Jones (bouzouki, bass guitar), Ewen McPherson (guitar, tromb, mandolin, banjo), Mike Katz (Scottish small pipes, Highland pipes), Iain Copeland (percussion), Russell Hunter (piano) and Alison Kinnaird (Scottish harp).
