The Skunnered grew out of Open Mic nights in East Renfrewshire, founded by Chas Cunningham (Bass, Songwriter) and Nick Ahrens (Harmonica, 12-string guitar). Andrew McMillan (Mandolin, Guitar) soon came along and the group solidified when Andy Lindsay (Percussion) joined. When Nick left, Paul Shepherd (Guitar) took his place. Genre Folkish rock!!
