Skerryvore entered 2017 having, once again, been recognised as the ‘Live Act of the Year 2016’ at the Scottish Traditional Music Awards, an award they previously won in 2011.
The band – Tiree brothers Daniel Gillespie (accordion) and Martin Gillespie (whistles & accordion), Fraser West (drums & vocals), Alec Dalglish (lead vocals & guitar), Craig Espie (fiddles), Alan Scobie (keyboards) and Jodie Bremaneson (bass) and recent addition Scott Wood (bagpipes) – tour extensively, not only throughout Scotland and the Rest of the UK, but also worldwide. The 2015 ‘Decade World Tour’ was launched with a sell-out 6000 capacity concert at Mossfield Stadium, Oban and then took in Holland, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Denmark and USA, as well as UK gigs stretching from Shetland to the South of England. Skerryvore returned to USA in August 2016 for a 7 week, coast to coast tour – their longest yet!
All members bring their own musical style to the Skerryvore mix. The more they have experimented with this mix, the more the band and their signature sound has evolved. This is evident in the progression across the 6 albums released since 2005:
West Coast Life (2005)
On the Road (2007)
Skerryvore (2010) – SNMA Record of the year 2011
World of Chances (2012)
Chasing the Sun (2014)
‘This is their most complete and mature album to date…’ (Phil Brown, BBC Radio Lancashire)
‘The sound of Young Scots Power Folk.’ (Mark Radcliffe, BBC Radio 2)
