GLASGOW, SCOTLAND--Skerryvore, an award-winning eight piece band from Scotland, will return to the U.S. and Canada this fall following up on their highly successful spring tour of North America. The band is calling this their "360 World Tour" since they will have virtually toured the entire year of 2019 going into 2020 all the while filming every show with a specialized 360 camera. In addition to the U.S. and Canada, 2019 has already found them in Australia, Holland, Denmark, England and, of course, Scotland.
Lead singer and songwriter Alec Dalglish comments, "The ‘360 Tour’ began with a performance at our own music festival ‘Oban Live’ which sold out to 10,000 people over two days in the beautiful west coast town of Oban in Scotland. We’ll continue on this world tour with visits to Spain, Germany, Denmark, Holland, England, Dubai, Singapore, Australia and several runs in the US & Canada. The finale of the tour in June of 2020 will be our biggest show to date when we host a special grand event to celebrate 15 years as a band. The camera offers the chance for fans to see life on the road and on stage from our perspective with much of it being filmed for for possible use for a documentary on down the line."
Hailing from the island of Tiree, Skerryvore formed in 2005; their music is an eclectic fusion of rock, pop and traditional music with an emphatic thundering of drums and bagpipes and is as rich as a single malt scotch. With their outstanding musicianship and the mesmerizing voice of award-winning Dalglish, Skerry
