"Skyhook" at Edinburgh Folk ClubWednesday 27th October 2010
"Skyhook are an exciting collaboration of three of the finest acoustic musicians in Sheffield, England. Martin Harwood, Cath James and Eoin Teather play traditional tunes and songs from Scotland, Ireland, Cape Breton Island, plus some brand new self-penned compositions.
skyhook are characterised by breathtaking twin fiddles combined with sublime guitar, bouzouki and voice. They shift seamlessly between driving dance music and spine-tingling songs, and play with a joy and precision that's hard to match. "
"Watch out for the name; this quality band are going places. Wonderful music."
- Linda Wild, Artistic Director, Wimborne Folk Festival
"astoundingly good" - Stirrings Magazine

"an absolute delight; music that lifts the spirit" - South Riding Folk Arts Network News (Spring 2006)

They've got the skill tae make a song thir own.
Took me back tae the days when folk musicians hud tae serve thir time.
