Here’s a Scottish recipe you might like to try. Take two brothers, Daniel (Accordion) and Martin Gillespie (pipes, whistles and accordion), steeped in the Scottish west coast ceilidh tradition on the Isle of Tiree, and add in friends Fraser West (drums) and Alec Dalglish (guitar and vocals), with a background in brass bands, wind bands, jazz bands, and with blues, folk and country influences.
Leave to mature for a few years, then whisk in Craig Espie (fiddle) and Jodie Bremaneson (bass), stir in your album producer Alan Scobie on Keyboards and mix with Glasgow music scene and add BBC young traditional musician of the year finalist Scott Wood (pipes and whistles), and bake them together in a world tour, taking their high energy, musically expansive set not just throughout UK and Europe, but also to USA, Canada and Australia.
Twice winners of the Scottish Traditional music’s ‘Live Act of the Year’ Skerryvore represent the best in contemporary Scottish traditional music, with a growing fanbase worldwide and with the promise of much more to come.
A mouth-watering prospect!
