Skerryvore
Shows & Displays

SKERRYVORE create a unique fusion of folk, trad, rock and Americana that represents all the different personalities and upbringing of the 8 band members who hail from different regions of Scotland.

Take two brothers, Daniel (Accordion) and Martin Gillespie (pipes, whistles and accordion), steeped in the Scottish west coast ceilidh tradition on the Isle of Tiree, and add in friends Fraser West (drums) and Alec Dalglish (guitar and vocals), with a background in brass bands, wind bands, jazz bands, and with blues, folk and country influences, and you have the 2005, embryonic Skerryvore.

This major new exhibition of works by JMW Turner, one of the most renowned of English Romantic artists, explores his transformation from an architectural draughtsman, when he set out on his first North of England tour in 1797, to a poet of the landscape sublime, which culminated in the arrival at his most northerly point in England, the village of Norham in Northumberland.

Berwick's iconic Royal Border Bridge is illuminated each evening from dusk, with a changing programme of lights.

To mark occasions, raise awareness of causes and to commemorate special dates; the illuminations are set to a significant colour. This creates a special spectacle and a unique opportunity for photography.
