THE Isle of Lewis will play host to one of Scotland’s favourite bands on January 2nd (2013) as the Skerryvore boys return for another memorable foot-stomping show in the newly refurbished Stornoway Town Hall.

Having played together for over seven years, Skerryvore has captivated audiences all over the globe with their mesmerising performances and unique music – which has earned many awards, including the Scottish New Music Award ‘Record of the Year’ 2011, and the Scottish Trad Music Award ‘Live Act of the Year’ 2011.

For the Skerryvore lads, recognition came sooner than expected – when first formed in 2005 on the small island of Tiree, little could they have known that within a matter of years they would be performing in more than 20 countries worldwide, playing to audiences from Chicago to Shanghai, as well as have four albums and an array of industry awards under their belt.

Syber Promotions is proud therefore to bring Skerryvore back to Stornoway as part of their World of Chances winter tour, as the company’s Iain Macphail said: “I cannot imagine a better way to round off the New Year celebrations – Great people, brilliant music and a wee dram all in the one place!”

There are a limited number of advance tickets to the Skerryvore Stornoway Town Hall show, which go on sale tomorrow (Wednesday, November 14th) priced £10 plus small booking fee; followed by the general release of tickets from December 1st, priced £12.50.

Tickets are available from An Lanntair box office, Stornoway, or online via www.skerryvore.com or www.syberpromotions.com

The concert is only open to Over-18s and ID may be required for entry and to ensure service at the bar; but the message is clear: to avoid disappointment be sure to get your tickets early for what promises to be an excellent night of foot-stomping sing-along amazingness.
