Skerryvore

Over the last 15 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 the USA, Canada, Australia and throughout the UK and Europe.

Picking up Scottish traditional music’s ‘Live Act of the Year’ twice on the way – in 2011 and again in 2016 – the band’s wide range of influences and talent produce a musically expansive, high energy set that excites and captivates audiences.

The band celebrated their 10th birthday in 2015 by launching their own 6,000 capacity “Decade’ festival, following this up with successful “Oban Live’ events over each of the next four years.

 

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 has raised several thousands of pounds for NHS staff charities.

Comfortable in the studio though the band are, it’s on the road in front of a live audience that they really come into their own.

Their live album, recorded at Scottish venues in late 2019 and released in the summer of 2020 highlights this, as well as giving a hint there’s still much more to come for Skerryvore’s growing worldwide fanbase.

Miners Foundry Cultural Center is thrilled to present Skerryvore in Nevada City on Sunday March 8 at 7:30pm!

About

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

2020 will mark the 15th year of Skerryvore, and see the band embark on an special anniversary world tour to select venues and festivals.

“See them now before they rocket up into the same musical orbit as the mighty Mumford & Sons.”
