Battlefield BandFormed in 1975 in the Glasgow suburb of Battlefield, this band is one of the great institutions in Scottish music. Battlefield Band has spent over three decades offering its contagious version of "the real Scotland," a blend of songs old and new, played on a combination of ancient and modern instruments—bagpipes, keyboards, fiddle, guitar, flutes, bodhran, and accordion. 

Winner of "Best Live Act" at the 2003 Scots Trad Music Awards, Battlefield Band's current lineup includes fiddle prodigy and multi-instrumentalist Alasdair White, Highland piper Mike Katz, and accomplished multi instrumentalist and singer Sean O'Donnell, plus newest member, Ewen Henderson, on fiddle, bagpipes, whistles, and piano. Tonight, the foursome propels the Freight "forward with Scotland's past"—clapping and stomping all the way—with tunes from their latest album, Line-up (Temple), and other gems drawn from their long history.
