Skipinnish's exciting release "Western Ocean" carries on where "Atlantic Roar" left off... on the crest of a wave.
Since the release of the hugely successful "Atlantic Roar", Skipinnish have been working hard preparing the material for their next recording.
The album is a wild blend of old and new Skipinnish, reflecting the traditional style set by the band's early records but with the high-energy addition of the younger members.
Includes songs composed by Angus and Robert, and ripping tune-sets along with some well known classics.
Western Ocean available now from Music Scotland... enjoy the sail!

"There's a certain expectation about a Skipinnish release that you're going to get a mixture of cracking tune sets and songs, either in Gaelic or English, which range from sensitive to anthemic. This album certainly doesn't let you down on any of these points, or on any other, come to that." Gordon Potter, The Living Tradition
