> saltire series : skerryvore with special guest dougie maclean
Back on the remote Scottish island of Tiree in 2005, the raw but contemporary trad quartet that formed Skerryvore could have only dreamed that over the next decade they would become a multi-award winning act that was performing in over 25 countries worldwide and featured as ambassadors for their country in an International advertising campaign for Visit Scotland.
From those traditional roots the band have 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.
Dougie MacLean is Scotland's pre-eminent singer-songwriter and a national musical
treasure” (SingOut USA) who has developed a unique blend of lyrical, 'roots based' songwriting and instrumental composition. He is internationally renowned for his song 'Caledonia', music for 'Last of the Mohicans' and inspired performances.
His songs have been covered by Paolo Nutini, Amy MacDonald, Ronan Keating, Mary Black, Frankie Miller, Cara Dillon, Kathy Mattea and many other top performers.
He has received two prestigious Tartan Clef Awards, a place in the Scottish Music Hall of Fame, a Lifetime Achievement Award from BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards and an OBE!
