Awarded as "Album of the Year" at Scots Trad Music Awards 2013!
A superb new release from Battlefield Band, one of the great institutions of the Scottish music scene. Their invigorated & inspired fusion of ancient and modern traditional music continually evolves whilst still staying true to the tradition, and illustrates that they remain amongst the most vital contemporary composers and interpreters of traditional music today.
These recordings, produced by Robin Morton, capture Scotland’s flagship band at the top of their game: the band's ever-fiery instrumental dynamic, with bagpipes and fiddles to the fore, exhibits the intuitive interplay and understanding between world class traditional musicians, while their songs of social history, plaintive ballads and songs from the Scots Gaelic tradition are as powerful, relevant and moving as ever.
"'...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 review, Feb 2013
