Battlefield Band are one of the great institutions of Scottish traditional music. Their seamless fusion of ancient and contemporary music and song has continually evolved over the decades, confirming them as vital composers and interpreters at the forefront of a living tradition.  Their latest release ‘Room Enough For All’ (awarded Album of the Year at the prestigious MG Alba Scots Trad Music Awards 2013) captures the fiery instrumental dynamics, intuitive interplay and understanding between world class musicians, while their plaintive ballads and tales of social history are as powerful and relevant as ever.

‘…as fresh as new mown hay…their live show was a revelation, their new album is a keeper’
