Award-winning live performers in their native Scotland, Skerryvore are no slouches as recording artists either. Each tune is captured with exceptional production and mixing to ensure each member (incl. violin, flute) of this exceptional octet gets a chance to shine. None is more impressive than Alec Dalglich, whose vocals peal with a level of spirited sincerity that gels with the band’s vividly romantic lyrics. While Skerryvore’s heritage chimes through gracefully on “Take My Hand” and “...End of the Line,” the catchiest song of the bunch is the Americana-heavy pop-rocker “Borderline,” which could work well in an end credit film/TV slot. This is one lively, crowd-pleasing band.
