Scottish Folk: Alan Reid & Rob van Sante in Concert

Date: 
Saturday, January 16, 2016 - 8:00pm

Alan Reid was a vital member of Scotland’s legendary folk group Battlefield Band for 40 years. His groundbreaking keyboard work helped cement the band’s reputation as one of the most influential of its generation, as did his songs. From beautiful ballads to a musical cycle on the life and times on Scots born sailor John Paul Jones, Alan has forged a reputation for composing songs with beguiling melodies and strong historical content. He was nominated in the 2009 Scots Tradition
 Awards in the ‘Composer of the Year’ category.

Rob van Sante 
worked as Battlefield’s sound engineer and is acknowledged in the U.K. for his subtle guitar accompaniments and fine harmony singing.

The duo has released four critically acclaimed
 albums, the latest being “Rough Diamonds” (2014). Their show features fine harmonies, choruses and some dry humor. In short, an entertaining night out.
