Skipinnish has today (Tuesday 31st August 2021) announced that it will headline a special show – Live @ Xmas – in Inverness Leisure Centre on Friday 10th December 2021. Picture by: Andrew King.
After a tough, forced hiatus, the band is eager to get back on stage to perform its original Celtic songs and tune sets to live audiences.
Being able to celebrate together in the one place in the Highlands at Christmas is perfect.
Skipinnish very much appreciates the continued support of fans through the pandemic and is excited to now move forward and once again share their music and classic anthems, such as Walking on the Waves, The Island, Alive and Western Ocean, in the unique atmosphere of a live concert.
A reinvigorated band, amazing fans and a Xmas party!
Skipinnish songwriter and accordionist, Angus MacPhail said:
“This will be our first Highland gig in nearly two years and what a way to set off the Christmas season – an exclusive show in the Highland Capital! Inverness audiences are always incredible and after such a long wait this concert will have an extra magic!
“The time of year, the location, the long wait and working with Les, Claire and the LCC team again, mean this gig is one we are all really excited about!”
Concert promoter, LCC Live, will host the show; its first live event in almost two years.
Claire Kidger, Director of LCC Live, commented:
“As we start to see the return of live events across the UK, we’re excited to announce our first live show of 2021.
“And, who better to celebrate that milestone with than Skipinnish!
“We know from conversations with the band that they’re really looking forward to picking up their instruments once again and experiencing the joys of playing to their fans in the Highlands.
“Tickets are limited and will be sold on a first come first served basis.
“Come and join us, and let’s make it a night to remember!”
