Skerryvore represent the best in contemporary Scottish traditional music!
Over the last 16 years, Skerryvore have brought their performances to audiences across the globe, from their early days in Scottish West Coast halls and bars, to Festival crowds in USA, Canada, Australia and throughout the UK and Europe. Picking up Scottish traditional music’s ‘Live Act of the Year’ twice on the way – the band’s wide range of influences and talent produce a musically expansive, high energy set that excites and captivates audiences. Their 6 studio albums demonstrate the wide range of influences the individual musicians bring to the mix – a unique fusion of folk, trad, rock and Americana, with even some jazz in there!
In 2021, Skerryvore were placed on the BBC Radio 2 Playlist twice, with their songs Together Again and You & I, which hit the prestigious A List. Multiple daily plays and great a response from the presenters, has seen Skerryvore reach a whole new fanbase - and led to their streams skyrocketing and a sold-out winter tour. It is extremely rare for a ‘non-mainstream’ independent artist to be placed on the list so the band feel incredibly honoured to have received this recognition.
This brilliant band create a wonderful atmosphere for all ages and deliver a high energy set that excites and captivates the audience.. a feel good sound of folk rock with bagpipes, accordions and fiddle combined with kicking rhythms of guitar, bass and drums and keys.
