Skipinnish are riding an ever-growing wave of popularity and 2017 has been the biggest year for the band since they began way back in 1999 when co-founders Andrew Stevenson and Angus MacPhail joined forces. With increased numbers from these early days and with the addition of lead vocals and full back line, the last few years have seen this band hit the very top of the music scene in Scotland. With hit after hit of self penned songs and a strong mix of powerful bagpipe, fiddle and accordion led tune sets, they encompass the very best of contemporary Celtic Music.
Their large and growing fan base is such that all Skipinnish gigs in 2017 sold out in advance. From Eden Court Theatre in Inverness to The Queens Hall in Edinburgh and from the Albert Halls in Stirling to the famous Barrowland Ballroom in Glasgow, every show has been full and audiences have been going wild! The Barrowland show, which was the band’s biggest gig to date, sold out completely four months before the concert and all gigs announced so far for 2018 are on the way to capacity ticket sales already.
As well as their own stand-alone performances, Skipinnish are one of the hottest acts on the vibrant music festival scene at the moment. Having headlined some of Britain’s biggest festivals in 2017, they have some exciting but limited festivals appearance in line for 2018.
