GLASGOW, SCOTLAND--Skerryvore is an eight piece band whose eclectic fusion of rock, pop and traditional music with an emphatic thundering of drums and bagpipes is as rich as a single malt scotch. With their outstanding musicianship and the mesmerizing voice of award-winning singer-songwriter, Alec Dalglish, Skerryvore has become an international sensation.
Hailing from the island of Tiree, Skerryvore formed in 2005 and in addition to Dalglish on lead vocals and guitar, the band includes brothers Daniel Gillespie (accordion) and Martin Gillespie (whistles & accordion), Fraser West (drums & vocals), Craig Espie (fiddles), Alan Scobie (keyboards), Jodie Bremaneson (bass) and Scott Wood (bagpipes). The band took their unique name after the lighthouse that sits on a remote reef of the same name off of Tiree; it is the tallest in Scotland. The name is pronounced Sker-ee-vore.
Skerryvore is twice winners of Scotland’s Traditional Music Awards coveted “Live Act of the Year” (2011 and 2016). They have performed in over 25 countries and are very popular in the Middle East and China.
