The Selkie Girls
In a little over four years, The Selkie Girls have made a huge impression on the local and regional music scene. The band (Allison Johnson: guitar/vocals, Jaycee Skidmore: penny whistle/flutes/vocals, Dave Ervin: guitar/vocals, Joel Black: upright and fretless acoustic bass, Martin McCall: percussion, and Linda Mudd: harp) has performed at the most sought-after events throughout Texas: *North Texas Irish Festival *Austin Celtic Festival *Texas Scottish Festival *Kimbell Art Museum *Grapevine Grapefest *Uncle Calvin’s Coffeehouse *Dallas's Trinity Hall Pub
Whether it’s an intimate private event or a packed performance hall, The Selkie Girls provide an unforgettable music experience. The Selkie Girls recently released their third CD, Pirate Queen, which has received rave reviews and has been selling steadily at live shows and through iTunes and Amazon. Their music has been featured on popular radio shows in the United States, Canada, and the U.K., and their unique take on the Celtic/Folk music tradition, built upon lush vocal harmonies and dynamic instrumental arrangements, never fails to captivate audiences both old and young. With a repertoire including ancient laments, contemporary ballads, traditional Irish tunes, Scottish Gaelic folk, and a few foot-stomping jigs and reels, there's never a dull moment.
