The Royal Highland Hoolie, taking place Friday 23 and Saturday 24 June 2023, will showcase some of Scotland and Ireland’s best homegrown music talent. The group will be joining fellow artists including Derek Ryan, Skerryvore and Lisa McHugh.

With a strong mix of powerful bagpipe, fiddle and accordion led tune sets, Skipinnish encompasses the very best of contemporary Celtic Music. Celebrating their 20th anniversary in 2019, the band have been going from strength to strength, selling out some of the biggest venues in Scotland. 

The band are looking forward to returning to some Scottish festivals in 2023, kicking it all off with the Royal Highland Hoolie. Skipinnish co-founder, Andrew Stevenson, commented:

"The band are thrilled to be playing at the Royal Highland Hoolie this June.

“We can't wait to bring the Skipinnish sound to headline at the Royal Highland Hoolie and the Royal Highland Show, while joining a fantastic line up of fellow musicians flying the flag for modern Celtic music.”
