Four years after playing at the grand opening of Stramash, Scots Celtic rockers Skerryvore are back at the Edinburgh music venue tomorrow night.
The band’s popularity has soared in recent years and they have been performing in front of numerous sell-out crowds during their current ‘360 world tour’.
That will be the case in the Cowgate when they make a welcome appearance on stage in the city’s Old Town.
Formed on the island of Tiree in 2005, their award-winning ‘trad-rock’ fusion has seen them perform in over 25 countries worldwide.
Stramash general manager Steven Cosans is delighted to see the venue figure on their latest tour.
He said : “Skerryvore are hugely popular and it will be great to see them back here,” he said.
“They played at our launch party so have a special connection to the place. And we had them here last year, too. They always put on a great show for the crowd and I’m sure this gig will be no different.”
Skerryvore have twice been awarded ‘Live Act of the Year’ at the Trad Music Awards.
From their traditional roots, the band has developed both in size and sound to create a unique fusion of their traditional music and songs with the urban sounds of rock, pop and funk.
The band’s ability to fuse traditional Scottish music and rhythms with a range of other genres is a trademark of their distinctive, high energy sound.
Doors open at 7.00pm with support from up-and-coming Buckie singer songwriter Calum Jones.
