Skerryvore to give Moray audience first glimpse of new album

Skerryvore – appearing in Moray.

An internationally acclaimed Scots folk/rock band who have performed in over 25 countries around the world are set to hit the stage in Moray next week.

The audience at Tomintoul will be provided an early opportunity to hear some of the tracks from the fifth album to be released by ‘Skerryvore‘ later this year.

Skerryvore were formed on Tiree in 2005 and have since taken the world by storm, performing extensively throughout Scotland as well as undertaking an annual tour of the United States where they will return in August.

The band accepted an invitation by the Tomintoul & Glenlivet Development Trust to play the Richmond Memorial Hall. Band frontman Alec Dalglish said: “We’ll be trying out a few of the new songs along with a mix of favourites from the earlier albums. It will be a great night.”

Skerryvore are looking forward to making this event a “belter” – with their driving sound of bagpipes, accordions and fiddle, fused brilliantly with kicking rhythms of guitar, bass and drums. This is the only chance to see the band in Moray this summer.

The show takes place on June 14 at the Richmond Memorial Hall, where doors will open at 8.30pm for the licensed late-night event that kicks off at 9.00 pm.

Remaining tickets, priced at £15, are available online from or from Sound & Vision in Elgin, or via the Tomintoul and Glenlivet Development Trust on 01807 580358.

Skerryvore have teamed up with insideMoray to give fans a chance to win four tickets for the show and to meet and greet the band.
