The Whisky River Boat Band

The Whisky River Boat Band originally got together for a musical canoeing odyssey down the River Spey in 2011. The expedition involved the five-piece bluegrass and country folk band canoeing 65 miles down the Spey (the fastest flowing river in Scotland), stopping occasionally to play a gig, drink whisky, and possibly sleep.

Amazingly, both they and their instruments survived, whilst the gigs were great and the craic was mighty - so they decided to keep on going and have since survived several more unlikely musical expeditions and recorded two EPs. To date, they have completed The West Coast by Whisky Yacht, The Fools Day Bike Ride, and The Big Trip to the Big Tent - with further voyages in the planning.
