Wednesday 27th October 2010

This band delighted us when they opened up for Mike Whellans last year.

"Skyhook are an exciting collaboration of three of the finest acoustic musicians in Sheffield, England. Martin Harwood, Cath James and Eoin Teather play traditional tunes and songs from Scotland, Ireland, Cape Breton Island, plus some brand new self-penned compositions.

skyhook are characterised by breathtaking twin fiddles combined with sublime guitar, bouzouki and voice. They shift seamlessly between driving dance music and spine-tingling songs, and play with a joy and precision that's hard to match. "

"Watch out for the name; this quality band are going places. Wonderful music."
- Linda Wild, Artistic Director, Wimborne Folk Festival

"astoundingly good" - Stirrings Magazine

"was inadvertantly, overwhelmingly blown away at Sheffield Folk Festival yesterday by a stunning three piece... Two superb fiddlers accompanied by a fine, fine guitarist (who also turned out to be an unbelievably good singer)" - Keith Donnelly

"an absolute delight; music that lifts the spirit" - South Riding Folk Arts Network News (Spring 2006)

Thanks.

I'm afraid that a lot of Edinburgers don't know how lucky they are sometimes.

Hopefully, they'll all prove me wrong tonight and come along in their droves.
