Live in Edinburgh!
8:00pm, Friday 18 May 2018
Having come storming back from the edge of existence when they lost their former lead singer in 2016, Highland band Skipinnish are powering through their biggest year yet. In the 18 year history of the band their current popularity is unprecedented and is growing at an accelerating rate.
Having started 2017 with their hit single, Alive which they followed with the album, The Seventh Wave, the magic of this band’s music and self penned songs are enchanting more and more people from Scotland and across the world all the time. The end of the year has brought another run of sell-out shows, yet another hit single, Wishing Well, and to top off 2017, Skipinnish were named Live Act of the Year at the Trad Music Awards.
On the 18th their return to Edinburgh is much anticipated after their sell out show at the Queens Hall in May 2017 brought rave reviews, an audience going wild and a standing ovation. The Usher Hall is a fitting step up in venue size for this ever-growing giant of Scottish Music.
As well as headlining some of the UK’s biggest festivals, Skipinnish have sold out every single venue they have appeared at in 2017. Along with their show in Edinburgh, they also packed out – among many other venues - The Barrowland Ballroom in Glasgow, Eden Court Theatre in Inverness, The Lemon Tree in Aberdeen, The Albert Halls in Stirling and Perth Concert Hall. They have already sold out their Celtic Connection gig in Glasgow’s Pavilion Theatre, which is not till February 2018 and Eden Court Theatre which is not until April!
Skipinnish are on the crest of a wave that is growing bigger and more powerful with every performance. How far the band’s popularity will continue to grow is difficult to predict, but if this year’s shows are anything to go by their wave is on the way to great heights.
