SKERRYVORE - An explosive mix of traditional and contemporary Scottish sounds!!

Skerryvore are a 6 peice traditional band based in Glasgow, Scotland. 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.

Their driving sound of bagpipes, accordions and fiddle fused brilliantly with kicking rhythms of guitar, bass and drums has seen them appear at various festivals throughout Britain and Ireland including the Tarbert Music Festival, Hebridean Celtic Festival, MOK Festival and Celtic Connections.

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 2007 and  sold over 2000 copies within the first week of sale.

They tour extensively around the UK and Europe and are currently on their 'On The Road....Again' Summer tour
