"one of the UK's most promising young bands" - Songlines (Oct 2014)
Read the full review here

skyhook Cath James, Martin Harwood and Eoin Teather play traditional tunes and songs from Scotland, Ireland and Cape Breton Island in Nova Scotia, plus self-penned compositions by Cath, finalist in the 2008 and 2011 Niel Gow International Fiddle Composition Award.

skyhook are characterised by breathtaking twin fiddles combined with sublime guitar, bouzouki and voice. They shift seamlessly between exhilarating dance music, with unique interplay and harmonies from the fiddles, to spine-tingling songs which are sensitively arranged and beautifully sung. skyhook play with a joy and precision that's hard to match.
