plus very special guest Sharon Shannon with Alan Connor
Skerryvore entered 2017 having, once again, been recognised as the Live Act of the Year 2016 at the MG Alba Scottish Traditional Music Awards, an award they previously won in 2011.
Since their amped-up ceilidh-band beginnings on the isle of Tiree, Skerryvore's buoyant, tautly crafted folk-rock sound has conquered the world from Chicago to Shanghai. The 8-piece band - brothers Daniel Gillespie (accordion) and Martin Gillespie (bagpipes, whistles and accordion), Fraser West (drums and vocals), Alec Dalglish (lead vocals and guitar), Craig Espie (fiddles), Alan Scobie (keyboards), Scott Wood (pipes) and Jodie Bremaneson (bass) all bring their own musical influences to bear on the Skerryvore mix. The more they have experimented with their trademark blend of powerful anthemic songwriting and ferociously hard-driving instrumental sets, the more the band and their signature sound has evolved.
'the hottest Celtic rockers on the block' Daily Record
The Co Clare accordionist Sharon Shannon has achieved legendary status in her native Ireland and throughout the world. Renowned for her collaborations, not just in Irish traditional music, but across many musical styles and with a who’s who of artists including Bono, Sinead O’Connor, Jackson Browne, John Prine, Steve Earle, The Chieftains, The Waterboys, Willie Nelson, Nigel Kennedy, Alison Krauss and Shane MacGowan - a list that is testament to Sharon's versatility as well as talent.
'the stunning technique and restless imagination of Sharon Shannon have been strong features of Irish music in recent years' Daily Telegraph
