An Clar Geal (The White Album)
[COMD2099] - 4 in Stock
Alasdair White is already well known as Battlefield Band's virtuoso fiddle player. In these past four or five years, his musicianship and tune making have had a great influence on the band's repertoire and continuing success, and playing with Battlefield Band has given him that wider audience that his music deserves.
For those fiddle enthusiasts among you, he 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. On 'An Clàr Geal', Alasdair plays fiddle and whistles and is also joined by Aaron Jones (bouzouki, bass guitar), Ewen McPherson (guitar, tromb, mandolin, banjo), Battlefield Band-mate Mike Katz (Scottish small pipes, highland pipes), Iain Copeland (percussion), Russell Hunter (piano) & Alison Kinnaird (Scottish harp).
