Skipinish to play Inverness in July 2020.

Following the success of the band’s 20th anniversary show in Inverness in July, Skippinish returns to the Big Top in 2020.

 It is surprising to note that the band started way back in 1999 when Andrew Stevenson and Angus MacPhail originally joined forces, although the band has certainly evolved both in numbers and style over the years. With an aim to “perform a unique and sublime mix of highland tradition and contemporary music” the band has successfully continued to build on their momentum.

Band co-founder, Angus MacPhail, said:

“We had such an amazing show in Inverness in July. Performing a concert of that size in the Highland capital was a dream come true. We can’t wait to return, and this time headline the Saturday night in the Big Top at Bught Park. Come and join us and sing your hearts out and go wild!”

This is the first music event for 2020 to be confirmed by LCC Live, the biggest producer of live music events in Inverness and the North of Scotland.

Carlie Davidson of LCC Live, said:

“We had such a great weekend of live music in the Big Top Tent last year, that we’re delighted to be bringing it back in 2020. Skipinnish were out of this world when they performed this summer, and their fans had the most amazing night. We’re looking forward to welcoming Big Country and Peat & Diesel too – we’re planning a great summer of live music!”
