Summer break

After some beautiful events like ’the Celtic Euregio Days’  we have a short summer break. Getting new inspiration and enjoying the hot summer sun while playing music till late in the evening! Skibbereen wil be back in autumn with new gigs. There will be some beautiful events coming up so check our events! we wish you all a great summer!

Back on track

We’ re almost at the end of this year and it’s time to look back. We’ve had a great musical year with Skibbereen. We started off with a new member Adriaan van Sandwijk.  We are really happy to play with him, he makes the sound of Skibbereen complete with his beautiful fiddle. We worked hard on our repertoire and added some new interesting songs and sounds. Mik now plays the piano sometimes and added his vocal skills together with Twan and Adriaan. From a traditional americana song we made a catchy song with an irish twist. We are still working on our repertoire and performance. We’ve added some visual elements in our show and there are some wild ideas for the future….

Next year we will be working on a cd so hopefully we will present you in 2019 a full Skibbereen cd!  Check facebook etc and we will keep you updated. We are booked for another great festival in 2019 and there will be more surprising events, so check our agenda!!!

We wish to all our friend and fans beautiful holidays and a blessed, musical 2019! hope to see you at our next gig ;)








2017 was a great year for Skibbereen, we’ve done some beautiful concerts and are really making progress in our musical journey. We are working on new material and we are adding new instruments. In 2018 we are planning to do full concerts. So we hope to see you next year!!!

For all the fans and friends we hope you have great holidays and a happy newyear! Slainte!



Beste fans,

Muziek maken is een van de mooiste dingen die er bestaan. Soms moet men (helaas) keuzes maken vanwege persoonlijke omstandigheden….
Onze draailier-speelster Ilona heeft te kennen gegeven dat ze met Skibbereen stopt. We vinden het heel jammer maar respecteren haar beslissing.
We wensen Ilona al het goede op haar verdere levensweg.
Ilona, bedankt voor jouw bijdrage aan Skibbereen. Het ga je goed.


Dear fans,

Making music is one of the most beautiful things that exist. Sometimes one must (unfortunately) make choices because of personal circumstances.
Our hurdy-gurdyist Ilona has announced that she stops with Skibbereen. We are very sorry but respect her decision.
We wish Ilona all the best on her path.
Ilona, thank you for your contribution to Skibbereen. Best wishes. Slainte!

now we are 6!

Now we are six!
We proudly present our new member of Skibbereen: Ilona Tychon on hurdy gurdy.
Ilona, welcome in Skibbereen!
