We welcome The Red Dirt Skinners to the Salmon Bothy on Wednesday 26 November at 7.30 pm
Described by Classic Rock's new country magazine as'The First Couple of British Country', the Red Dirt Skinners (Rob and Sarah Skinner) met in 2009 and instantly found both a musical and romantic connection!
Seen early on in their career as a duo by Lisa-Marie Presley, who was extremely impressed by their harmonies, the couple have also worked with Paulo Nutini, Stan Webb’s Chicken Shack, Tommy Castro, and Bad Manners and have shared a stage with many others on the Blues and Country circuits.
Rarely will you see two people more comfortable on stage than the Skinners. Their live shows have been described (by R2 magazine) as “House-wreckingly good!”, and also as “refreshingly different” and “beyond perfection”.
Rob and Sarah will leave the audience in no doubt as to why there is such a buzz about them. With sublime vocal harmonies, trademark sax solos, finger picked or insanely fast strummed guitar, and (if the venue permits) live drums, Red Dirt Skinners shows are fun and interactive.
With lyrics that make you cry one minute and have you laughing the next, Rob and Sarah are also five time finalists in the UK Songwriting contest.
