Red Dirt Skinners – Friday 12th April, 8.00pm

Described by Roots Music Canada as “The Pink Floyd of Folk Music” the Red Dirt Skinners are the multi-award winning, multi-instrumentalist husband and wife team of Rob and Sarah Skinner.

The first act in history to achieve accolades at both the British Blues and British Country Awards, the duo’s unique sound also won them folk/roots album of the year in several polls across the UK and North America and saw them nominated duo of the year at the International Acoustic Music Awards.

With male and female harmonies blending together as one voice and Sarah’s trademark soprano saxophone solos, you will be swept along by the refreshingly different sound of the Red Dirt Skinners.

If you like songs influenced by Pink Floyd, Simon and Garfunkel, Supertramp, Crosby Stills and Nash, David Bowie coupled with some epic storytelling, humour and heartfelt emotions, you’ll love a Red Dirt Skinners concert.

The Skinners have a natural rapport with their audiences and their live shows are a wonderful experience; a musical journey to remember. Be prepared for laugh out loud lyrics, followed by songs sure to pull at your heartstrings. Rob and Sarah Skinner will steal your hearts. Don’t miss their show!

In case you’re not familiar with the Red Dirt Skinners, the duo have recently released their fifth album. The genre is hard to categorise but the reviews are coming in that people don’t care… it’s refreshingly different! If one had to pigeonhole the sound you might say it’s an acoustic mixture of blues, country, folk, americana, and some jazz. Take a listen and see what you think!
