Performing Arts Series
With a mix of fiddle, accordions, pipes and whistles, alongside guitar and vocals, underpinned by driving bass, drums and keys, Skerryvore represent the best in contemporary Scottish traditional music. Their six studio albums demonstrate the wide range of influences the individual musicians bring to the mix – a unique fusion of folk, trad, rock and Americana, with even some jazz in there!
During the Covid-19 crisis, which closed down the band’s touring and performing calendar for most of 2020 and well into 2021, Skerryvore explored and developed alternative performance possibilities, including live streaming and virtual performances. The band’s single, ‘Everyday Heroes,’ recorded from home, and aided by a variety of musicians from across the country, reached number one in the official Scottish charts and has raised several thousands of pounds for NHS staff charities.
Skerryvore's Together Again international tour, which is named after a track released by the band in July 2021, celebrates "our returning ability to be with our families, friends, and communities after so many months of hardship." They are bringing the show to Socorro for an evening full of exciting music enhanced by the joy of being able to share it, once again, together.

Since 2005, Skerryvore have brought their performances to audiences across the globe, from their early days in Scottish West Coast halls and bars, to Festival crowds in USA, Canada, Australia and throughout the UK and Europe. Picking up Scottish traditional music’s ‘Live Act of the Year’ twice on the way – in 2011 and again in 2016 – the band’s wide range of influences and talent produce a musically expansive, high energy set that excites and captivates audiences.
