The Seventh Wave is living up to its name for Scottish band Skipinnish, with their album riding higher in the UK charts than any band of their type since Runrig brought Celtic music to the masses.

Hitting number 25 in the mainstream UK download charts and holding the number one spot on the world music chart for more than two weeks, and counting, makes The Seventh Wave the most successful album from any traditional band in recent years.
