Sean O'Donnell (vocals/guitar)
A highly accomplished guitarist and singer, Sean was born in Derry, Northern Ireland. He moved to Scotland in 1996, and quickly became involved in the music scene, playing with the award- winning Scots Irish band Beneche and The Emily Smith Band, as well as with Michael McGoldrick and Daimh. He joined Battlefield Band in 2005 and has become a keystone of the group's sound: his soulful vocals and driving rhythmic guitar adding so much to the mix. As a recent reviewer noted: "O'Donnell is a revelation; from his heartfelt & moving vocals when taking the lead, and his subtly complimentary harmonies when supporting a song, he is a truly expressive singer who has matured and developed over his period with the group"

Mike Katz (Highland pipes/small pipes/various whistles/bass guitar/guitar)

A superb and versatile musician, bagpiper Mike Katz joined the Battlefield Band line-up in late 1997and has contributed massively to the music and accessibility of the band. A fine piper from an early age, a multi-instrumentalist, and a 'musician's musician' with eclectic influences, Mike comes originally from LA - where he learned and played in the same pipe band as another band alumni; Eric Rigler. Initially moving to Scotland aged 18 to study at Edinburgh University, Mike put down roots and has lived here ever since, playing in various bands - including the Scottish Gas Pipe Band & Ceolbeg before joining Battlefield Band in 1997 - and in the process earned himself a deserved reputation as a truly excellent musician and tunesmith .
