Shepherdstown Music and Dance presents Skippers Alley
Skippers Alley
Friday, October 13 , 8pm
Shepherdstown Presbyterian Church

Skippers Alley are a modern Irish folk band with an old-school approach. Their influences range from folk revival bands such as Planxty and The Bothy Band to rare, experimental solo players like Tommie Potts and Séamus Ennis.

Once described as a young Irish ensemble who look like a punk band and sound like The Chieftains Skippers Alley specialise in gritty, high-octane Irish dance tunes on Uilleann Pipes, Whistles, Fiddle, Bodhrán, Bouzouki, Flute and Harp, with occasional detours into the dark, sombre melodies of the Irish song tradition.

Since forming in 2013 Skippers Alley have garnered wide critical praise, appeared on national and international TV, and toured on four continents. Write-ups include The Irish Times (), The Living Tradition, Folk Radio UK, Folk World, and Celtic Music Radio (). TV appearances include S4Cs Lorient as well as RTÉs Fleadh! and The Late Late Show. Festival appearances include Electric Picnic (Ireland), Festival Interceltique de Lorient (France), The Stan Rogers Folk Festival (Canada), Spring Fest (India) and The Dayton Ohio Irish Fest (USA).

In 2014, Skippers Alleys released their self-titled debut album under the production of Trevor Hutchinson (Lúnasa, The Waterboys, Sharron Shannon). To date the record has received wide critical acclaim and sold out several repressings.

Skippers Alley are currently touring regularly in North America and are hard at work on a second album due for release in mid to late 2017.
Advance tickets are $20 adults, $18 seniors and $15 members and $10 students. At the door: $25 adults, $22 seniors, $20 members and $10 children/students.  Advance tickets are available at OHurleys General Store or from Brown Paper Tickets.
