Having come storming back from the edge of existence when they lost their former lead singer in 2016, Highland band Skipinnish are powering through their biggest year yet. Their current popularity is growing at an accelerating rate.
Having started 2017 with their hit single “Alive” which they followed with the Album, The Seventh Wave, the magic of this band’s music and self – penned songs are enchanting more and more people from Scotland and across the world.
In October 2017, they stormed a full house of fans from across the world at the iconic Barrowland Ballroom in Glasgow. The gig sold out in record time with the first 600 tickets selling in less than 10 minutes!
As well as head-lining some of the UK’s biggest festivals, Skipinnish have sold out every single venue they have appeared at in 2017, including Eden Court Theatre – Inverness, The Barrowland – Glasgow, The Queens Hall – Edinburgh, The Lemon Tree – Aberdeen, The Albert Halls – Stirling and many other venues across the country.
Skipinnish are on the crest of wave that is growing bigger and more powerful with every performance.
“Skipinnish took Shrewsbury Folk Festival by storm this year presenting their high energy Celtic music alongside superb vocals and brilliant musicianship. Our audience loved them so much we invited them back for a second year. This is one of Scotland’s finest bands.”
Alan Surtees / Shrewsbury Folk Festival
“Atlantic Roar is the perfect example of what Skipinnish are all about, and why you need to see them live – they’re a class act, their music is outstanding, and they’re darn good fun.”
Stuart Milne / Views from the Circle
“There’s a certain expectation about a Skipinnish release that you’re going to get a mixture of cracking tune sets and songs, either in Gaelic or English, which range from sensitive to anthemic. This album certainly doesn’t let you down on any of these points, or on any other, come to that.”
