Battlefield Band, Dookin'
Under their banner Forward with Scotland’s past this iconic band have been distilling their own unique version of Scottish spirit, and bottling it in the world’s concert halls, and on disc, for more than 30 years. Dookin’ is the Scots word for what you do at hallowe’en - as in ‘dookin’ for apples’ and that is just what Battlefield Band have doing for all these years – Dookin’ into the great pool of Scottish (and Irish) music and song. Indeed they have added to that pool with songs and tunes of their own, to the delight of all. After 30 years, and nearly as many solo and Band albums, what can yousay? There is always a continuity from one album to the next but, from thisband of virtuoso and creative musicians, there is always, always something new and surprising. Newly discovered and self penned songs and tunes -guests invited, not for their celebrity, but for their musicianship, new instruments and sounds.
