Skellig / Bio

Original Fiddle-driven Rock influenced by Irish Folk, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, The Beatles, Peter Gabriel, U2, and Muse.

Skellig was originally formed in South Africa, after Chris and Lisa moved to Cape Town in 1990. Returning to the UK in 1994, Skellig UK continued for several years, producing two CDs, ‘In Another Time’ and ‘Fragile’. In 2005 they decided to move to Canada. Fellow Ladysmither Mike joined in 2007, his son Will following a year later, and local axeman Dylan Wickham was added to the mix in 2011. In Canada, Skellig has produced the 2008 EP "Skellig" and the 2012 Album "Kingdom Come".

Apart from being competent musicians, Skellig is a true family band and therein lies our great strength. Our audience loves the fact that we are family. This brings a sense of connection with people, young and old. Our fans and fellow musicians are now our extended family here on the island. We support original music, enjoy playing some covers and organizing events for charity, but most of all we have fun!
