One of the great institutions of the Scottish music scene, and an ever-evolving bedrock of talent for over four decades, Battlefield Band’s ever-fiery instrumental dynamic exhibits the intuitive interplay and understanding between world class traditional musicians. New album ‘Room Enough For All’ finds them fresh & invigorated, and illustrates yet again that they are among the most relevant contemporary composers and interpreters of traditional music today, while their songs of social history, plaintive ballads and songs from the Scots Gaelic tradition are as powerful, relevant and moving as ever.
‘These stalwarts of the Scottish traditional music scene pull off their umpteenth album with panache’

‘…as fresh as new mown hay…their live show was a revelation, their new album is a keeper’
Irish Music Magazine, May/June 2013
‘…still at the cutting edge of modern Scottish folk music…technically flawless and fabulously entertaining’
