Red Dirt Skinners hit the road
UK tour takes place as duo continue writing 4th album
Guitar and sax duo The Dirt Skinners launch a run of UK shows this week, as they continue writing material for their fourth studio album.
Married couple Sarah and Rob Skinner have differing musical tastes – but that’s what gives their music an additional edge.
Sarah tells the [Inverness Courier](http://http: //www.whatson-north.co.uk/Whats-On/Music/Hardworking-duo-set-to-play-the-north-03082015.htm): “Rob likes to listen to some quite heavy, proggy music, and I am more blues and jazz. But we both love Americana music such as Stoney LaRue or Dave Rawlings.”
She adds: “We respect and enjoy each other’s tastes. When it comes to writing songs or choosing covers to play, we’re very much in agreement.”
The multiple award-winning outfit released Sinking The Mary Rose in 2013 and followed it with Live In Aberdeen last year.
