Skerryvore

Skerryvore represent the very best in contemporary Scottish traditional music.

Over the last 16 years, Skerryvore have brought 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
six 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!

The impact of the Covid-19 crisis decimated the band’s
touring and performing calendar for 2020, and well into 2021. During this time
Skerryvore explored and developed alternative performance possibilities,
including live streaming and virtual performances. The band’s single, ‘Everyday
Heroes,’ recorded from home, and aided by a variety of musicians from across
the country, reached number one in the official Scottish charts and, so far,
has raised several thousands of pounds for NHS staff charities.

In January 2021, Skerryvore were included on the BBC
Radio 2
Playlist for six weeks with their song ‘You and I’, with two weeks
on the prestigious A List. Multiple daily plays, and a great response from the
presenters, has seen Skerryvore reach a whole new fanbase. 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.

Skerryvore create a unique a feel good sound of folk rock, with
a mix of fiddle, accordions, pipes and whistles, alongside guitar and vocals,
underpinned by driving bass, drums and keys.

“Such a fresh, real, new sound… I love it” ~ Jeremy Vine
