Red Dirt Skinners
Widely regarded as one of the most innovative acts to come out of the UK in recent years, the sublime genre-defying sound of the Red Dirt Skinners is created by husband and wife team, Rob and Sarah Skinner. If you like songs influenced by Pink Floyd, Simon and Garfunkel, Supertramp, Crosby Stills and Nash, or David Bowie, coupled with some epic storytelling, humour and heartfelt emotions, you’ll love this duo, who have had success in both national and international awards in several genres. The Skinners refuse to be pigeonholed; their audiences always describe them as ‘refreshingly different’. Drawing on influences from more genres than would make sense to list, the Red Dirt Skinners’ sound is instantly recognizable. Comfortably blending exceptional, almost telepathic harmonies with the unique instrumentation of soprano saxophone and acoustic guitar, audiences fall in love with the Skinners.
