White-Katz-ODonnell

Dont miss the incredible White-Katz-ODonnell tonight at 7PM. Long-time members of Scotlands seminal Battlefield Band, Mike Katz, Alasdair White, and Sean ODonnell have played together for nearly two decades. Only £7.00 Entry, Family friendly and a Fully stocked bar with all your local favourites!

Originally from Los Angeles, Mike Katz is a superb bagpiper and multi-instrumentalist who has lived in Scotland ever since attending Edinburgh University at age 18. Mike played in various bands and combinations, including Scottish Gas Pipe Band, and Ceolbeg, before joining Battlefield Band. In recent years he has played as a guest with the great Breton institution, Bagad Kemper, with Cirque du Soleil co-founder Guy Laliberté’s EDM project, The Frog Collective, and currently with Old Blind Dogs. His playing and interpretation of pipe music continues to be greatly influential in the Scottish tradition at large. 

Alasdair White is widely regarded as one of the leading exponents of Scottish fiddle music touring, teaching and performing today on both sides of the Atlantic. His deep rooted yet wide-ranging musicality reflects his Isle of Lewis birthplace, current New York City home, and 20 years globe-trotting with some of the best known names in Scottish, Irish, and Breton music.

Don't miss a night of excellent folk music, great drinks and great atmosphere.
