The Irish Festival of Oulu: SKIPPER'S ALLEY


Once described as ''a young Irish ensemble who look like a punk band and sound like The Chieftains”, Skipper’s Alley specialise in raw, high-octane Irish dance tunes and in gritty, passionate renditions of traditional song.
Skipper’s Alley are a contemporary Irish folk band with an old-school approach. Their influences range from folk revival bands such as Planxty and The Dubliners to experimental solo players like Tommie Potts and Séamus Ennis. Since forming in 2013 Skipper’s Alley have garnered wide critical praise, appeared on national and international TV and toured on four continents.
