The Red Dirt Skinners (Rob and Sarah Skinner) met in 2009 and instantly found both a musical and romantic connection! Seen early on in their career as a duo by Lisa-Marie Presley, who was extremely impressed by their harmonies, the couple have also worked with Paulo Nutini, Stan Webb’s Chicken Shack, Tommy Castro, and Bad Manners and have shared a stage with many others on the Blues and Country circuits.
Rarely will you see two people more comfortable on stage than the Skinners. Their live shows have been described (by R2 magazine) as “House-wreckingly good!”, and also as “refreshingly different” and “beyond perfection”. Rob and Sarah will leave the audience in no doubt as to why there is such a buzz about them. With sublime vocal harmonies, trademark sax solos, finger picked or insanely fast strummed guitar, and (if the venue permits) live drums, Red Dirt Skinners shows are fun and interactive. With lyrics that make you cry one minute and have you laughing the next, Rob and Sarah are also five time finalists in the UK Songwriting contest.
The Skinners write songs from the heart and from their own experiences. Sinking The Mary Rose is no different here. There are songs about people they’ve met, about loneliness, injustice, friendships that turn sour, unscrupulous landlords and there’s even a heartfelt song about domestic violence.
Sarah’s trademark soprano sax playing weaves its way through most of the Red Dirt Skinners songs, giving them a unique sound
and earning Sarah the honour of being nominated twice (and reaching second place in 2013 and winning in 2014) at the British Blues Awards for Best Instrumentalist. Also in 2013, the couple were placed as finalists at the British Country Music Awards (People’s choice and Best New Act). genre-busting sound means that the Red Dirt Skinners are the first band in history to succeed at both the British Blues Awards and the British Country Music Awards.
