Skipinnish encompasses the very best of contemporary celtic music with a unique and sublime mix of chart-topping, self-penned songs and powerful bagpipe, fiddle and accordion-led tune sets.

The band has built a loyal and strong fan base since its formation in 1999 by Andrew Stevenson and Angus MacPhail on the Isle of Tiree. It has evolved into an eight-piece that has been named Live Act of the Year on two occasions at the Trad Music Awards and gained widespread recognition with the 2017 album The Seventh Wave.

Skipinnish’s wonderfully evocative song writing coupled with the boundless energy of the live shows continues to captivate audiences throughout the UK and continental Europe.

“The Seventh Wave referred to in the band’s album title is said to have the power to heal and rejuvenate... their music itself seems to bear the same legendary power.”
