Scottish folk legend Battlefield Band live in Vaduz Konzert as match warm-up during the game against Scotland
12.05.2011


The mood for the match against Scotland on 8 October 2011 have prepared the LFV and the TAK special: An open-air concert in the town square Vaduz on the eve of the international match will be cheering Scotland and Liechtenstein fans together. A guest is the legendary Battlefield Band from Glasgow, einheizt for 40 years fans from all over the world musically powerful.

Match match with live music
The TAK-audience knows the legendary Battlefield Band already an overwhelming musical experience in the last season in the TAK. Now the Scottish folk legend, a guest on the eve of soccer match against Scotland again in the Principality of Liechtenstein. In the context of cooperation between the Liechtenstein Football Association and the LFV TAK Liechtenstein Theatre on Friday, 7 October 2011 with free admission, an open air concert held on the Vaduz Town Hall Square.

It is common for locals and Scots celebrated event is the ideal introduction to the much-anticipated return of the two national teams, which had in the fall of 2010 at the legendary Hampden Park in Glasgow delivered a thrilling duel at eye level. To the fans of both teams to really get in the mood, the concert is coming with the "Battiest," as the Scottish band is affectionately known by their fans, just right. The Liechtenstein Football Association and the TAK Theater in Liechtenstein are pleased with the unprecedented cooperation and the realization of this exceptional cultural match warm-ups.

Battlefield Band - a living legend
The Battlefield Band was already in the 70s to the pioneers who helped the folk music for a revival by the restricted elements of rock, pop and jazz. Even today, the band for traditional and contemporary Scottish songs and of course extremely virtuoso bagpipe and violin solos. The name of the band is no allusion to the way the match: The founding members came mostly from the Glasgow district of "Battlefield".

I don't know whether they're any good or not (?)

I'd never heard of them. I'm not adverse to a bit of folk music (in a pub or whatever), but I don't have any at home.

I told Flat Earth about this and he knows of them.

I'd never heard of them.


Funny if they're demonstrating Scottish culture to the locals and most of the Scots in town have never heard these "legends" :-))
There're a few tunes on Spotify if you have it.

This medley is my favourite set of theirs on YouTube...

Battlefield Band are legendary Scottish musicians - just see their website. They have had a few changes in lineup over the years but still a class act! Fiddles, pipes etc. Just the job

Great band. i have mentioned them many times over the years on the message board. If they do some of there older stuff like Bad Moon Rising, Band of a thousand chances, Blistered fingers, to name but 3 tracks then the place will rock. Lad's O' the Fair is probably my fav, but there again it's about the Trysting days in Falkirk.

If you are there for the Ted Christopher gig the following night, then try and get his bhodran player to do a wee solo number...................should be well worth hearing as the guy (Ian I am legend Graham) tells me he has adopted a new way to produce a different sound from his insrtument. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
