Battlefield Band

Last night (with a Belhaven Scottish Ale in hand) I saw Battlefield Band return to Houston in a standing-room only concert at the Mucky Duck.

The band put on a great show featuring a number of traditional Scottish and Irish tunes as well as several original compositions.The highlights included a setting of "To a Mouse" from the Robert Burns poem (which includes the famous line about the "best laid plans of mice and men"), "Road of Tears" the title track from their newest cd, "Take Me to the Sea", "Nancy's Whiskey", a cover of Woody Guthrie's "Plane Wreck at Los Gatos" and some amazing piping by Mike Katz.

The band also played their show-stopping rendition of Prince’s "Kiss"...complete with bagpipe solo!

More info on the band’s recordings can be found here. Mike Katz’s solo cd can be found here.
