Biography

Tiree (2004 – present)

A driving sound of bagpipes, accordions and fiddle, fused brilliantly with kicking rhythms of guitar, bass and drums, Skerryvore are a young band blasting their exciting sound to audiences from the Western Isles of Scotland, to the thousands at Celtica in Italy. An all male band, they have been dubbed the ‘boy band’ of traditional Scottish music. The roots of the band come from the West Coast of Scotland and in particular the tiny Island of Tiree, in the Inner Hebrides of Scotland.

Skerryvore formed in 2004. Their debut album, ‘West Coast Life’ was awarded album of the month on BBC Radio Scotland’s Celtic Connections program in August 2005. Their 2nd album, titled ‘On the Road’, was released in July 2007 and went to re-press within a week of its release. With album sales now approaching 10,000, Skerryvore are a band capturing the hearts of audiences of all ages, at home and abroad.

Over the past 3 years, Skerryvore’s transforming, explosive sound has seen them touring and performing at festivals world-wide including Celtic Connections, Hebridean Celtic Festival, MOK Festival, MagiaCeltica & Celtica Festivals in Italy and the Netherlands. Throughout their travels they have appeared alongside the likes of the Peatbog Faeries, Red Hot Chilli Pipers, Lingalad, Sensational Alex Harvey Band, and also performing with Donnie Munro (formally Runrig) and Wolfstone at the Rock Celtic festival held at Glamis Castle in September this year.
