White, Alasdair, An Clar Geal (The White Album)

This is Alasdair White’s first solo album. Alasdair will be known to many of you, as Battlefield Band’s virtuoso fiddle player. In these past five years, his musicianship and tunemaking have had a great influence on the band’s repertoire and continuing success. Originally from the Isle of Lewis, in Scotland’s Outer Hebrides, where Gaelic language and music remain important influences on the culture of the Islands and Scotland in general. Now aged 23, Alasdair has been highly regarded and talked about since his early teens, and Battlefield Band have given him that wider audience that his music deserves. For those fiddle enthusiasts among you, Alasdair plays in what might be called a “North-west” Scottish style, heavily derived from the piping tradition. For those that love just good music, then Alasdair’s playing and tune making offer a privileged panorama of the exciting traditional music of Scotland today. The Battlefield Band tours nationally throughout the year.
