Description:

After an absence of 3 years, the Ojai Concert Series is excited to announce the return of Ojai's favorite Scottish touring band. The Battlefield Band will be performing on Wednesday, March 27th, 7:00PM at the Ojai Valley Woman's Club.

Inspired by their rich heritage of Celtic music and fired by the strength and vibrancy of today's Scottish cultural scene, which indeed they have done much to create and fuel, the Battlefield Band have led and been at the forefront of a great revival in Scottish music.  Refusing to be limited musically by suffocating antiquarianism, or musical fashions, they have mixed the old songs and music with a new self-penned repertoire, all played on a fusion of ancient and modern instruments - bagpipes, fiddle, synthesizer, guitar, flutes, bodhran and accordion.

Scotland’s great flagship band are the musicians that others measure themselves against, Founded by a group of friends in 1969 and named after the ‘Battlefield’ area of Glasgow, the band have now been touring & performing throughout the world for over forty years, playing to audiences in Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Asia, the Middle East, and Canada, as well as more than 60 cities annually in the United States.

Ever evolving; over the years new members have brought with them new ideas, music, instruments, attitudes and influences, leading to continued creativity, freshness and enthusiasm.
