Alan Reid was one of the leading lights of the Battlefield Band from 1969-2010; since then, he and guitarist Rob van Sante have released five CDs together. Their live set includes traditional Scots songs, songs from Rob's contemporary repertoire, a few vintage Battlefield Band songs and new compositions from Alan's productive pen—along with plenty of fun banter. Alan plays piano, accordion and guitar, and Rob andds his fine guitar playing and vocal stamp. Back in Takoma Park by popular demand on the last leg of their eastern U.S. tour, this is their last show together before returning to Europe. (Rob will be back in June with John Connolly and Janie Meneely.) Visit reidvansante.co.uk for audio samples.
At Janie Meneely’s (RSVP/directions: firstname.lastname@example.org). Doors and refreshments at 7:30, concert at 8. $20 suggested donation.
