Skerryvore – “A Runrig for the 21st Century”

This is another Celtic music group we are watching and listening to. Skerryvore, based in Scotland, shows they have a very solid sound and good energy.

Skerryvore were formed in 2004 on Isle of Tiree in Scotland’s wild west.From traditional roots the band have developed a unique fusion of their traditional music and songs with the urban sounds of rock and funk. With their oustanding musicianship and the mesmirising voice of singer Alec Dalglish, Skerryvore have gripped audiences across the world from Boston to Beijing and have been the highlights at many big festivals including Celtic festivals such as Celtic Connections and Hebcelt to the massive rock festival ‘T in the Park’.

The band had the honour of co-writing and performing the song ‘Hold Your Breath’ for the BBC Gaelic television series entitled ‘A’Gharaids’. The band’s own songs and fresh material are a big feature of their new album due for release in April 2010.

Skerryvore continue to generate a big following of fans and have achieved album sales of over 10 000 and their first album was awarded album of the month on the BBC Radio Scotland’s ‘Celtic Connections.’
