One of Scotland’s top contemporary folk-rock groups will bring their unique sound to Rothesay later this year.

Skerryvore are to play a gig at Rothesay Pavilion on Saturday, December 14 after taking part in a workshop session with local charity Achievement Bute earlier in the day.

Formed on the island of Tiree in 2005, the band were catapulted into the musical limelight as a result of their third album, simply titled ‘Skerryvore’ in 2011, which won them a string of prestigious awards, including SNMA Record of the Year 2011 and STMA Live Act of the Year 2011, and garnered much critical acclaim.

When not touring the different corners of the globe, the band can still be found performing relentlessly, contributing to projects by Live Music Now (LMN), The Royal Blind School, Artlink Central and HMP Cornton Vale as well as special needs schools throughout the UK. They also feature in a current VisitScotland TV commercial aimed at international audiences.
