Music Programme 2018

Traditional Scots music is in really good hands in the band called Skipinnish, who after almost 20 years of playing are going from strength to strength. The band tour constantly and play for full houses. As they write on their home page, “2017 has been the best year since we started in 1999.” Skipinnish sounds of bagpipes, accordion and fiddle: they offer a stylish modern take on Scots traditional music. It all began when accordionist Angus MacPhail met piper Andrew Stevenson in 1999, when they were both attending courses at the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama in Glasgow. Both are from the west – Tiree and Lochaber respectively. Skipinnish soon became a well-established name on the Scottish folk music scene. They have released eight albums, the most recent being The Seventh Wave from 2017.

In 2016, singer Robert Robertson left Skipinnish to focus on his work with the band Tide Lines, who incidentally are also appearing at Tønder Festival 2018. Skipinnish’ new singer is Norrie MacIver. This will be their only Danish concert in the summer of 2018.
