Of his next broadcast, host Andy Doerr writes, “Straight from Scotland the Battlefield Band will join host live on the ‘Roadtunes Sessions’ tonight Tuesday, March 26 at just past 7 p.m. Under their banner ‘Forward with Scotland’s Past,’ Battlefield Band have been a bedrock of talent for over four decades, and continue to lead the way for Scotland 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 toured and performed throughout the world, 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.
The new line-up includes young multi-instrumentalist Ewen Henderson, and has been received with great acclaim on their US, Canadian and UK tours, as the group move on to a new, exciting period in their musical development.
They’ll be playing a sold out show at the Ojai Concert Series this Wednesday, March 27 at 7 p.m. Details at: ojaiconcertseries.com.”
“The Roadtunes Sessions” airs Tuesdays in the winter from 7 to 9 p.m.
