Skerryvore

Saturday, October 5, 2024
7:30 pm — Hering Auditorium

Skerryvore is like no one else — epic of melody, intimate of feeling and plugged into the roots of Scotland but blasting out to the world. Three-time winners of Scotland’s Live Act of the Year Award, Skerryvore has become one of their country’s leading forces in a thriving live music scene.

At the forefront of a movement that has reinvented and reignited a traditional Scottish scene for a modern, multicultural audience, the band has brought their high-energy 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, Skerryvore’s wide range of influences and talent produce a musically expansive, immersive and intimate set that excites and captivates audiences.

With a mix of bagpipes, fiddles, accordions, and whistles, alongside guitar and vocals, underpinned by driving bass, drums and keys, Skerryvore represents the best in contemporary Scottish traditional music. Their seven studio albums demonstrate the wide range of influences the individual musicians bring to the mix – a unique fusion of folk, trad, pop and rock.

Three singles from Tempus, released in April 2023, featured on the BBC Radio 2 new music playlist, and the album went to number 1 in both the Official Scottish Album and UK Folk Albums charts, and entered the top 40 in the Official UK Charts.
