Skelpaig are an energetic trio of musicians from across the Highland and Islands who have been delighting audiences since spring 2006 with their blend of swirling melodies and high-energy harmonies. Their sound is inspired by folk music from around Europe including Ireland, Scotland, Brittany, Italy and Spain and includes a number of their own compositions. On fiddle is Katherine Liley from Claigan on the Isle of Skye. A remarkable talent for composing complements her rhythmic style of fiddling and technical ability. She has played with various bands throughout Scotland but is now dedicating her time to playing with Skelpaig. Piper and whistler David Adam is from Inverness. He also plays with the well-known samba fusion band MacUmba but enjoys the intimacy and musical freedom of Skelpaig. His love of the dance music of the pipes was inspired by many visits to South Uist, his mother's birthplace. Providing backing on guitar is David Sutherland from Lochaber. Skelpaig's debut album '...aye?' has tunes from Canada to Italy and includes a number of their own compositions. There are energetic strathspeys and reels to beautiful slow airs. Have a listen and hear what your missing.
