          Alan Reid and Rob van Sante (Scottish Folk)

 

Alan and Rob present a lively show featuring Alan’s compositions and traditional song that is rooted in the Scottish landscape, its cities, countryside and its coastline. Alan was an integral member of Scotland’s legendary Battlefield Band for forty years. From beautiful ballads to an entire musical cycle on the life and times of Scots born sailor John Paul Jones, he has forged a reputation for songs with beguiling melodies and strong historical content. Ably complemented by Rob’s tasteful guitar playing and fine singing, the duo offer a heady blend of seamless harmonies underpinned by sensitive arrangements on piano, guitars and accordion and topped by an engaging delivery that delights audiences all over the world.
