Moonbeams 6th Birthday Bash.. with the one and only Skerryvore!

Saturday 23rd November 2013
The Bell Hotel, Driffield, East Yorkshire

Doors 7.30 Start 8.00pm

On Saturday 23rd November it will be 6 years, to the day, since Moonbeams began. Named after one of his songs, Chris Helme played to a packed Maple Room. 6 years on, we have had some wonderful times., made lovely friends, gained a Summer and Winter festival and all my favourite artists have played.. including.. Lau, Roddy Woomle, Show of Hands, Oysterband, Martin Simpson, Ewan McLennan, Adrain Edmondson & The Bad Shepherds, Peggy & PJ, Vin Garbutt and the list goes on.... but most of all I have been supported by my fabulous audience..

So.... a special occasion is in order!!.. and it could not get much special than this.. Moonbeams Wold Top Festivals 2013 Headliners.. who took the roof of the Wold Tops barn.. are back! Skerryvore!!!

Skerryvore first formed on the tiny lsle of Tiree off Scotland's west coast in 2005. Back then, the band consisted of Tiree-born brothers Daniel Gillespie (accordion) and Martin Gillespie (bagpipes, whistles & accordion) who bonded with holidaymaker Fraser West (drums & vocals) and friend Alec Dalglish (lead vocals & guitar) over a shared love of music: everything from traditional to rock and iazz. It was this mix of musical styles and sounds that set the path for the band's 2005 debut album, 'West Coast Life.' The more the fledgling band experimented with fusing together this mix of musical styles, the more their signature sound evolved, aided by the arrival of Barry Caulfield (bass & vocals) and Craig Espie (fiddle) in time for their second album, 'On The Road', in 2007.

But it was with the release of self-titled third album, 'Skerryvore', that the band found themselves catapulted into the musical limelight winning a string of prestigious awards, including SNMA Record of the Year 2011 and STMA Live Act of the Year 2011, and garnering much critical acclaim:

"Skerryvore are the most promising young band in Scotland today''
Mick MacNeil, Simple Minds

In June 2012 the band released what is undeniably their most polished and radio-ready album to date. 'World of Chances' weaves together the band's spine-tingling musical talents with the award winning songwriting abilities of frontman Alec Dalglish (Frankie Miller Songwriter of the Year 2011). At times uplifting, at times reflective, the result is a brighter, breezier, feel good sound that looks set to broaden the band's appeal even further.

In Autumn 2012, bassman Barry Caulfield decided to move on and was replaced by former Wolfstone bassist, Colin Cunningham.

When not touring the different corners of the globe, the band can still be found performing relentlessly, contributing to projects by Live Music Now (LMN), The Royal Blind School, Artlink Central and HMP Cornton Vale as well as special needs schools throughout the UK. They also feature in a current VisitScotland TV commercial aimed at international audiences.

To quote the words of one local journalist:

"Six of the best musical ambassadors Scotland could ever have wished for... a living, breathing, l2 legged party waiting to happen."
The Falkirk Herald, Scotland
