The majority of Skipinnish’s songs are big productions with strong choruses, anthemic is a good description. It’s these qualities that make them such a phenomenal live band, ensuring audiences join in and sing their hearts out. - Folk Radio
Skipinnish are absolute masters at mixing together traditional and rock sensibilities to make powerful music crackling with energy and drive. - Fatea
The Glasgow welcome that Skipinnish received on Friday night was beyond exuberant. The audience was in a euphoric mood throughout, and it’s heart-warming to see a band whose core audience is in the north-west of Scotland enjoy such an enthusiastic welcome in the heart of Glasgow. The Seventh Wave referred to in the band’s album title is said to have the power to heal and rejuvenate – as Skipinnish ride the crest of that wave and bring their music to ever wider audiences, conquering not only Scotland’s central belt, but also leaving an impressive mark on the English festival scene; their music itself seems to bear the same legendary power. - Folk Radio
‘It is like a dream, playing to thousands of people. We would never have predicted playing such large venues when we started the band almost 20 years ago. ‘People are leaving our gigs on a euphoric music-fuelled high which is exhilarating. Our recent two nights at Inverness’ Eden Court were incredible – the atmosphere was electric. - Angus MacPhail in Scottish Field
