Skerryvore

“The hottest Celtic rockers on the block” Daily Record

SKERRYVORE create a unique fusion of folk, trad, rock, and Americana that represents all the different personalities and upbringing of the 8 band members who hail from different regions of Scotland.

Take two brothers, Daniel (Accordion) and Martin Gillespie (pipes, whistles and accordion), steeped in the Scottish west coast ceilidh tradition on the Isle of Tiree, and add in friends Fraser West (drums) and Alec Dalglish (guitar and vocals), with a background in brass bands, wind bands, jazz bands, and with blues, folk and country influences, and you have 2005, embryonic Skerryvore.

Fast forward 10 years, add Craig Espie (fiddle) and Jodie Bremaneson (bass), bring in your album producer Alan Scobie on Keyboards and mix in the Glasgow music scene – from University Applied Music courses and Traditional Music courses at the Royal Conservatoire to sell out gigs at O2 ABC – and you have a band that has already won Scottish Traditional music’s ‘Live Act of the Year’ in 2011 – they were to win it again in 2016 – and who, rightly, celebrated their decade by launching their own 6000 capacity festival.

By the time the 2019 version of that festival – now christened ‘Oban Live’ – comes around, that evolutionary development will have added BBC young traditional musician of the year finalist Scott Wood (pipes and whistles), produced ‘EVO,’ their latest album, and the curtain will have fallen on their EVO world tour which took their high energy, musically expansive set not just throughout UK and Europe, but also to USA, Canada, and Australia.

Skerryvore represents the best in contemporary Scottish traditional music, with a growing fanbase worldwide and with the promise of much more to come.

‘This is their most complete and mature album to date…” BBC Radio Lancashire

‘The sound of Young Scots Power Folk.” Mark Radcliffe, BBC Radio 2

…and in 2015 ‘Decade,’ a mix of live recordings, live studio sessions and a single ‘Happy to be Home’ featuring Sharon Shannon.

‘All in all a cracking album…giving a fair cross section of their past triumphs – and pointing us all in the direction where they are focussed on hurtling.” Living Tradition Magazine

‘The album includes the single ‘Happy to be Home’ which…is the stand-out track on a magnificent album.’”  Shire Folk
