Traditional Irish Music
Skipper’s Alley have announced 3 gigs for the New Year. On January 15th they will appear at Cleere's in Kilkenny, followed by The Crane, Galway on 22nd January and The Sugar Club, Dublin on January 24th.
Skipper’s Alley are a 7-piece trad ensemble whose dynamic take on Irish music has garnered wide critical praise and featured on such diverse stages as The Late Late Show and La Festival Interceltique de Lorient.
We featured their self-titled album on Tradconnect some time back and the response has been ‘overwhelming’ according to Dara Yeates. Aside from selling out in Claddagh Records on a number of occasions and getting very positive reviews from The Irish Times and Folk Radio UK, people really seemed to have made a connection with this recording.
Dara said : “Around the time of release we received a daily barrage of messages and emails with words of praise from far and near. We got particular message from a woman who bought the record for her eighty-something year-old father who, upon hearing the record, got up out of his chair and danced around the kitchen. No joke! It was an extremely encouraging experience.”
