Alasdair White is well known as Battlefield Band’s virtuoso
fiddle player. In these past four or five years, his musicianship
and tune making have had a great influence on the bands repertoire
and continuing success, and playing with Battlefield Band has
given him that wider audience that his music deserves.
Alasdair comes from the Island of Lewis, one of the Gaelic speaking
Outer Hebrides where music and culture remain strong daily forces.
It would be easy to emphasise his youth, but in fact he is as
complete a musician and composer as any of us have heard, of any
age. Alasdair has been an award-winning fiddler since he emerged
at age thirteen. The Scotsman praised him as a “13 year-old
maestro of the Highland fiddle playing surging strathspeys and
reels with maturity and expertise beyond his tender years”.
In this course you learn to play in the West Highland Style.
You will take in a march, 2 strathspeys, 2 reels and a jig.
