category at the Independent Music Awards!

We’re pleased to announce that Battlefield Band’s Alasdair White has won
the World Traditional Music category in the 7th annual Independent Music
Awards for his album An Clàr Geal. We initially thought this award was
voted for purely by the public but actually it turns out that various
esteemed industry judges made the final decisions - people like Joe Boyd,
Charlie Musselwhite, Ray Davies, Angelique Kidjo & Mavis Staples to name a
few - either way it’s a real honour to be singled out. Thanks to everyone
for your support!

Alasdair’s musicianship and tune making have had a great influence on the
Battlefield Band repertoire and continuing success, and playing with
Battlefield Band has given him that wider audience that his music deserves.
We’re all really pleased for him at Temple Records because we know just how
talented he is and it’s great to see him getting the acclaim he deserves.

“…exciting, stirring, fresh, moving… …brilliantly played and
arranged. I would rank this as one of my top albums of the year and I can’t
recommend it highly enough”
