Headlining the grand opening weekend of fabled music venue the Towne Crier’s new location in Beacon is club favorite the Battlefield Band, which will break in the relocated stage on October 5. Haling from Scotland, the Battlefield Band’s members are masters of their homeland’s traditional music. Combining older and more recent influences, the group’s joyful, raucous, and accessible performances led the Washington Post to praise the quartet for its “uncanny chemistry.” Active for more than four decades, the band is revered as the winner of the inaugural edition of the Scots Trad Music Award.
