The seven-piece folk-fusion ensemble Skerryvore will be paying a visit to Forest Folk on Monday.

First formed on the tiny lsle of Tiree off Scotland’s west coast in 2005, the band then consisted of Tiree-born brothers Daniel and Martin Gillespie who bonded with holidaymaker Fraser West and friend Alec Dalglish over a shared love of music: everything from traditional to rock and jazz.

The group took its name from the Skerryvore lighthouse that lies 12 miles off the coast of Tiree.

They recently released their fifth album Chasing the Sun.

The award-winning act, now also including Barry Caulfield, Craig Espie and Jodie Bremaneson, have scooped the SNMA Record of the Year 2011 and STMA Live Act of the Year 2011 titles as well as garnering, much critical acclaim along the way.
