Skipinnish is a traditional Scottish band from the Gàidhealtachd, singing primarily in English. The band (and brand) Skipinnish was created by Angus MacPhail and Andrew Stevenson in 1999 - both studying at the time at the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama (RSAMD) in Glasgow.

Skipinnish Brand

The Skipinnish Brand is used in addition to market whisky also in running of a cèilidh house named Skipinnish Ceilidh House which has been built in Fort William around the brand. There was previously a Skipinnish Ceilidh House in Oban.[1]

Skipinnish Records

The band runs its own record label which issues acts such as Skerryvore and Gary Innes. Two compilation albums were released of Skipinnish Records artists: The Deluxe Blend of Highland Music: The Best of Skipinnish Records (2006) and Best from Skipinnish Records, Vol. 2.
