"SKERRYVORE have crafted a world beating fusion, which takes pride in their heritage and above all else is a pure joy to listen to." FOLK RADIO UK
"SKERRYVORE have evolved to become one of Scotland's greatest musical exports" Wickham Festival, England
Twice winners of Scotland’s Traditional Music ‘Live Act of the Year’ Award (2016 & 2011), SKERRYVORE have been on a meteoric journey that has taken them from the remote Isle of Tiree on to International tours to all corners of the globe.
SKERRYVORE create a unique fusion of folk, trad, rock and Americana that represents all the different personalities and upbringing of the 8 band members who hail from different regions of Scotland.
Formed in 2005, the band marked their 10th anniversary in 2015 with a ‘Decade’ concert at Mossfield Stadium, Oban. The success of the Decade concert led to the creation of the band’s own annual festival, Oban Live that has now attracted over 10,000 attendees to enjoy international acts including KT Tunstall, We Banjo 3, Julie Fowlis and Capercaillie alongside SKERRYVORE.
2017 saw the release of the single Live Forever that provided the soundtrack for the Scottish tourism promotional campaign ‘Wild About Argyll’ and saw the single hit No.1 in the iTunes World Music chart. This was followed by the launch of the Live Forever Tour that has the band performing over 70 shows in the UK, Italy, Spain, Denmark, Netherlands and the United States.
2018 brings the release of SKERRYVORE’s 6th studio album, ‘Evo,’ accompanied by a global tour that will include a headline performance at the legendary Tonder Festival, Denmark.
Suppoort band BANJO LOUNGE 4, an Edinburgh-based acoustic crate-digging 4 piece to blow your mind!
Banjo Lounge 4 deliver classic songs in ever more original and imaginative arrangements. Once described as ‘Hayseed Dixie on speed with a serious chunk of Funk!’, they have been making fans wherever they play. Since their inception in 2007, they have performed at gigs up and down the country and beyond including many music festivals.
With 5 string banjo, acoustic guitar, double bass and drums, the band also features 3 part harmonies and some say that their bluegrass-funk interpretations are often better than the originals. Their eclectic and diverse blend of mash-ups include tunes by Daft Punk, The Prodigy, Metallica, Panjabi MC’s Knightrider remix of ‘Mundian To Bach Ke’, a bluegrass souped-up version of Dizzy Rascal’s ‘Dance Wiv Me’, New Order’s ‘Blue Monday’, ‘Jump Around’ by House of Pain, a high octane version of Duran Duran’s ‘Girls on Film’, a stylophone-powered treatment of The Beastie Boys’ ‘Intergalactic’, Beyonce’s ‘Crazy in Love’, and Nelly’s freshly bluegrass-ed ‘Hot In Herre’.
“… the slightly more left field option has to be The Banjo Lounge 4. Classic Old Skool hip-hop played in a bluegrass format and recounted in three part-harmony. What's not to like?” Alastair Tibbit, STV Edinburgh
