Alan Reid and Rob van Sante present a lively show rooted in the music of Scotland, its rich history and varied landscape providing much of the inspiration for their material. Seamless harmonies underpinned by sensitive arrangements on piano, guitars and accordion are topped by an engaging delivery peppered with dry humour and pithy anecdotes. Their latest album, ‘Rough Diamonds’, is currently showcasing on their regular tours of North America and and Europe.

The duo also has a special multi media show built on their third CD ‘The Adventures of John Paul Jones (2012) ,a blend of song, narration and slides. A musical drama version was premiered at the Dumfries and Galloway Arts Festival in 2012 and performed at the Edinburgh Festival in 2013.

Alan was a vital member of celebrated Scottish folk group Battlefield Band from 1969 till 2010. He helped cement the band’s international reputation with his story-style songwriting and sensitive renditions of traditional song. From achingly beautiful ballads to a musical cycle on the Scots born American naval hero John Paul Jones, Alan has gained a reputation for songs strong in melody and historical content.
