Robin Morton’s admiration for the Battlefield Band in all its many incarnations has driven the assembly of this collection; snapshots of 40 years of musical development that so effectively chart the band’s evolution. The Producer’s Choice is a superbly fitting celebration of it.
We talk to Robin Morton of Temple Records about his involvement in traditional music during the 1960s – a founder member of Boys of the Lough, ‘fifth member’ of the Battlefield Band, author, song-collector and promoter of folk music…the list goes on!
The latest offering from the Battlefield Band features 12 Scottish and Irish guest musicians, packed with great music and enough background information to satisfy your needs. A wonderful album that explores some of the roots and expressions of the shared tradition of Scotland and Ireland.
