Alasdair White of The Battlefield Band joins Gordon Hotckhiss this Wednesday, 15 September between 7-10.00pm to chat about the band’s upcoming Music Tryst concerts at Newbattle Abbey, Midlothian from Friday 17 to Sunday 19 September.
Alasdair is award-winning fiddler and comes from the Isle of Lewis, one of the Gaelic speaking Outer Hebrides where music and culture remain strong daily forces. He joined Battlefield Band at the age of 18 as complete a musician and composer as any of us had heard. Since then he has toured the world several times over and worked on many fine albums including a highly acclaimed debut solo CD confirming his reputation and firmly establishing himself as a unique talent and virtuoso fiddle player.
In these past few years his musicianship and writing have had a great influence on Battlefield Band’s repertoire and continuing success, and playing with them has given him the wider audience that his music deserves.
Hotchkiss Hotchpotch, Wednesday 7.00-10.00pm, Wednesdays. Repeat Thursdays 12 noon-3.00pm
