Wednesday 21st Mar 2012

Headliners at this year's Edinburgh Hogmanay, and nominated for "Best Live Act" BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2012, Peatbog Faeries have been described as 'The Future of Celtic Dance Music'. They incorporate influences taking them from traditional jigs and reels through jazz, hip hop, reggae and more. They bring a true flavour of traditional Scottish music whilst offering high octane Celtic dance music – so be prepared to dance! With their new 6 piece line up, the Peatbog Faeries go back to the their roots using all the dynamics of the larger band, but producing a new, vibrant and exciting sound.

“Welcome to the weird but undoubtedly wonderful world of The Peatbog Faeries, Skye’s finest, where nothing is as it seems and you should always expect the unexpected…. gloriously unpredicatable, a band to treasure” fRoots

"Imagine The Orb meeting a ceilidh band in the mind of Irvine Welsh. This is it! Billy Nasty may have mixed pipes and dance on the decks but the Peatbog Faeries can play it live and it blew the audience away." Edinburgh Evening News
