Skerryvore, the award-winning band from the tiny Isle of Tiree, are bringing their own particular brand of music to St Andrews’ Byre Theatre, on Friday, October 12.

The band, which has become an international sensation and are now performing everywhere from Chicago to Shanghai, have released their fourth album ‘World of Chances.’

The follow-up to much acclaimed third album ‘Skerryvore’, the new release draws heavily from the band’s experiences and influences while on tour, performing in over 20 countries worldwide and earning the accolade of STMA Live Act of the Year 2011 in the process.

In creating the new album the six-strong band of Alec Dalglish (lead vocals and guitar), Martin Gillespie (bagpipes, whistles and accordion), Daniel Gillespie (accordion), Fraser West (drums and vocals), Barry Caulfield (bass and vocals) and Craig Espie (fiddle), collaborated with producer and guest musician Alan Scobie (keyboards and percussion) to craft what is undeniably their most polished and radio-ready album to date.

Recorded in part at the iconic Fisher Lane Studio ‘World of Chances’ weaves together the band’s spine-tingling musical talents with the award-winning songwriting abilities of frontman Alec Dalglish.
