Festival 2018 - Fèis 2018



Skipinnish are riding an ever-growing wave of popularity and 2017 has been the biggest year for the band since they began way back in 1999 when co-founders Andrew Stevenson and Angus MacPhail joined forces. With hit after hit of self penned songs and a strong mix of powerful bagpipe, fiddle and accordion led tune sets, they encompass the very best of contemporary Celtic Music.

Their large and growing fan base is such that all Skipinnish gigs in 2017 sold out in advance. From Eden Court Theatre in Inverness to The Queens Hall in Edinburgh and from the Albert Halls in Stirling to the famous Barrowland Ballroom in Glasgow, every show has been full and audiences have been going wild! The Barrowland show, which was the band’s biggest gig to date, sold out completely four months early and all gigs announced so far for 2018 are on the way to capacity ticket sales already.

As well as their own stand-alone performances, Skipinnish are one of the hottest acts on the vibrant music festival scene at the moment. Having headlined some of Britain’s biggest festivals in 2017, they have some exciting but limited festivals appearances in line for 2018.

With lead singer, Norrie MacIver, hailing from Carloway on the West side of Lewis, The Hebridean Celtic Festival was high on the band’s hit list of desired gigs for 2018 and Skipinnish are delighted to be returning to this iconic island festival.

Skipinnish are headlining the HebCelt’s Thursday night with a main stage performance that is sure to have the whole of Lewis “walking on the waves”!
