The Selkie Girls have quickly and firmly established themselves as one of the premier folk music acts in the North Texas region. The band (Alli Johnson: guitar, vocals, Jaycie Skidmore: penny whistles/flutes/vocals, Dave Ervin: guitar/mandolin/vocals, Joel Black: upright and fretless acoustic bass, Martin McCall: percussion, and Linda Mudd: harp have performed at the most sought-after - events throughout the state, with featured performances at the North Texas Irish Festival, Austin Celtic Festival, Texas Scottish Festival, the Kimbell Art Museum, and some of the premier local pubs as well. With so much great music in the DFW area, it’s worth noting that the Selkie Girls offer a unique perspective on Celtic and folk music. Their take on the Celtic music tradition built upon lush vocal harmonies and dynamic instrumental arrangements, always captivates their audiences. The band’s repertoire includes ancient laments, contemporary ballads, traditional Irish tunes, Scottish Gaelic folk sung in the native tongue, and foot-stomping jigs and reels.
The Selkie Girls have recently released their third Cd, Pirate Queen. Many of the songs recorded for this Cd focus on strong women in history, like Grace O'Malley or Princess Louise. Their debut album, The Parting Glass, has been very well-received both critically and commercially, with the title track garnering international attention. Their sophomore album, Long Time Traveling, expanded the group’s sound with more intricate arrangements, further pushing the envelope of contemporary Celtic music. All three albums have received rave reviews (from fans and press alike) and have been selling steadily at live shows and online via iTunes and Amazon, with numeroustracks receiving airplay on stations throughout the world.
