"As a band we really wanted to mark our 10th year by holding the biggest and best Skerryvore gig to date. After researching different locations we chose Mossfield Stadium as Oban is the heart of Argyll & Isles and it felt natural to return to the region that was so prominent in the early development of the band. We are delighted to be joined by some of the most respected and creative musicians in the trad music scene that we have become friends with during our musical journey over the past decade. Having these friends being part of our special event will only add to the festival feel and help make it a Skerryvore celebration of past and present with a few surprises thrown in for good measure! Daniel Gillespie, founding member and accordion player.
