"Reminds us what really touches people about great folk music"
Celtic Music Radio
Skipper’s Alley are a seven-piece ensemble whose dynamic take on traditional Irish music has garnered wide critical praise and featured on stages across three continents. With a sound described as “from unaccompanied song through to full Chieftains frenzy” (Folk World), the Dublin-based group arranges and interprets traditional Irish folk music on Uilleann pipes, harp, fiddle, whistles, bodhran, banjo and more, taking influence from such early bands as Planxty, De Dannan and The Bothy Band. They've toured in Ireland, England, Scotland, France, Germany, Denmark, India, and Zambia, and in November 2014 they released their self-titled debut album to wide critical acclaim. Skipper's Alley comes to Michigan with a second album in the works.
