Jim and Sylvia Barnes

Both fine musicians, Jim (cittern, guitar, vocals) and Sylvia Barnes (vocals, dulcimer, guitar, bodhran) were part of one of the early Battlefield Band line-ups, coming to the band via the group 'Kentigern', and later settled in England where their home became a welcoming ‘safe house’ for many a travelling Scottish folk musician.

Jim sadly passed away in 2004.

Jim & Sylvia appear on the Battlefield Band promotional EP 'Preview'. Originally released by Temple Records in 1980 as the band were changing line-ups and labels, this EP was re-released on CD by Temple in 1994 as a package with the album 'Stand Easy' which had originally been released on Topic in 1979.
