Under the banner “Forward with Scotland’s Past,” Battlefield Band has been a bedrock of talent for over four decades, and continues to lead the way with their inspired fusion of ancient and modern traditional music and song. Founded by a group of friends in 1969 and named after the Battlefield area of Glasgow, the band has now been touring and performing throughout the world for over forty years, playing to audiences in Europe, Australia and New Zealand, Asia, the Middle East and Canada, as well as more than 60 cities annually in the United States. Ever evolving, over the years new members have brought with them new ideas, music, instruments, attitudes and influences, leading to continued creativity, freshness and enthusiasm.
