Members of Slighe nan Gaidheal’s music group Seirm will be singing two songs with Alan & Rob!



For over 40 years, Alan Reid’s songwriting, vocals, and groundbreaking keyboard work helped cement Battlefield Band’s reputation as one of the most influential Scottish folk bands.

Alan’s songs are beguiling melodies with strong historical content ranging from beautiful ballads to a musical cycle on the life and times of Scots born sailor John Paul Jones.

Rob van Sante’s tasteful and driving guitar work underpins Alan’s piano, accordion, and guitar while each complements the other’s lead vocals with strong harmonies. Together Rob and Alan deliver an entertaining program featuring Alan’s well-crafted songs and choice traditional selections.
