Sublime, genre-defying musicianship. The Red Dirt Skinners are the first band in history to succeed at both the British Blues Awards and the British Country Music Awards.
Drawing on influences as diverse as Acker Bilk and ACDC, this unique duo are breaking all the rules and creating a whole new sound. Without fail, audiences are on their feet at the end of a Red Dirt Skinners show, and all are saying the same thing…”that’s refreshingly different”.
