THE Red Dirt Skinners, the multi-award winning, multi-instrumentalist husband and wife team of Rob and Sarah Skinner, are set to perform in the Silver Street Sessions at Cotleigh Brewery, Wiveliscombe.

The duo are widely regarded as one of the most innovative acts to come out of the UK in recent years and have been described as ‘the Pink Floyd of folk music’ by Roots Music Canada.

A spokesman for the band said: “If you like songs influenced by Simon and Garfunkel, Supertramp, Crosby Stills and Nash, and David Bowie coupled with some epic storytelling, humour and heartfelt emotions, you’ll love a Red Dirt Skinners concert.

“With male and female harmonies blending together as one voice and Sarah’s trademark soprano saxophone solos, you will be swept along by the refreshingly different sound.”

The duo, who now live in Canada, are returning to the UK for a series of intimate shows this spring in support of their sixth album, Under Utopian Skies.

The Red Dirt Skinners are in concert on Thursday (March 21) – tickets priced £12 are available from 01984 623308, [email protected] and Wiveliscombe Post Office. Doors open 7.30pm and the show starts at 8pm.
