Music Programme 2019

They played at Tønder Festival in 2018 and everyone knew they would be back. In 2019 Skipinnish will celebrate their 20th birthday and their popularity is bigger than ever before. Skipinnish encompasses the very best of contemporary Celtic music with a unique and sublime mix of chart-topping, self-penned songs and powerful bagpipe, fiddle and accordion-led tune sets. The band has built a loyal and strong fan base since its formation in 1999. It all began when accordionist Angus MacPhail met piper Andrew Stevenson, when they were studying at The Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama in Glasgow. The last few years – with singer Norrie MacIver in front – Skipinnish have seen their support rocket to bring them to the top of the thriving Celtic Music scene in Scotland as well as the rest of the UK and Europe. The band have made seven albums, the latest being The Seventh Wave from 2017. Skipinnish won the title of Scots Trad Live Act of the Year 2017. Their appearance at Tønder will be their only Danish concert in the summer of 2019.
