Skerryvore in concert
ENJOY THE SOUND OF SKERRYVORE LIVE AT BIGGAR RUGBY CLUB
About this event
Skerryvore is a Scottish Celtic Rock group formed in Tiree, Argyll and Bute in 2004. The band started off with Tiree brothers Daniel Gillespie and Martin Gillespie, alongside regular Tiree visitor Fraser West and his friend Alec Dalglish, both from Livingston, West Lothian. The group took their name from the Skerryvore lighthouse that lies 12 miles (19 km) off the coast of Tiree. The group's present line-up includes Craig Espie, Alan Scobie, Jodie Bremaneson and, since April 2017, Scott Wood. Skerryvore have released six studio albums, with the addition of a ‘deluxe’ version of one including some live tracks, a compilation album, and a live album.
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.
Now based in and around Glasgow, Scotland, Skerryvore tour throughout Scotland, in Europe, and in the United States, the Middle East, and in China.
Biggar RFC are hosting a fortnight of Rugby and Music and profits from this concert will contribute to raising funds for the development of the Biggar RFC Community Sports Centre. Biggar RFC's mission is to advance community health, wellbeing and education through participation in sport for all.
