Skerryvore - Scottish Celtic Rockers

What's On - Events Calendar for Exeter and the surrounding area of Devon
20th November 2017 ** EVENT ENDED **
Overview: Scottish Traditional Music Live Act of the Year 2016, Skerryvore, The exhilarating Celtic Rockers, return to England for the Autumn 2017 leg of their biannual tours of England and Wales. The band tour worldwide, with European dates and 2 separate tours in the US in 2017.

They are eager to bring their unique sound to new audiences, as well as making welcome returns to familiar venues.

The band started as a four piece with their roots on the tiny Hebridean island of Tiree. Fraser and Alec Dalglish, who are both from Livingston in West Lothian met Tiree brothers Daniel Martin Gillespie while on holiday there. They take their name from Skerryvore, the tallest lighthouse in UK which lies 12 miles south-west of the island of Tiree.

All 8 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. Their earlier work was West Coast Ceilidh inspired, with Celtic influences which have remained present in all their work.

As the band have developed, Rock, Pop, Jazz, Cajun and country influences have all emerged, but the traditional Celtic roots and instrumentation have remained.
