Welcome aboard the website of the Whisky River Boat Band!

The bands unique mix of bluegrass, country, folk and cajun can bring a tear to your eye and your feet to the dance floor. They have released two EP’s Going Down this River and Hello Wow!!!

The Whisky River Boat Band are a group of friends who originally got together for a musical canoeing odyssey down the Spey River. The trip involved the group canoeing 65 miles down the Spey River (the fastest flowing river in Scotland) stopping every now and again to play a gig, drink whisky and possibly sleep.

Amazingly they reached the north sea with the band and instruments in one piece. The gigs were great and the craic was mighty so the band decided to keep on going and have since successfully survived several more unlikely musical expeditions. So far they have completed The West Coast by Whisky Yacht, The Fools Day Bike Ride and The Big Trip to the Big Tent, hopefully there will be many more to follow.
