“Nothing prepares you for the high octane music of the Peatbog Faeries. Powerful melodies are dextrously pumped out with a smart degree of techno attitude, while cross-rhythms ricochet over a heavy bass that hits you forcefully like a massive heart beat.” The Scotsman.
Hailing from the Isle of Skye, the legendary Scottish trailblazers have created a glorious mixture of traditional sounds and dance-floor grooves that have been embraced worldwide. Drawing upon a dazzling myriad of influences from jigs and reels through Dance Music, Jazz, African, and more, they bring the sound of Scotland fresh-faced and breathless to the new audiences around the world. Their mainly instrumental music teases unlikely combinations from the fiddle and highland pipes to create exciting themes and soundscapes, as well as locking into their trademark hypnotic sound that no-one can resist dancing to! The band is made up of Peter Morrison on pipes and whistles, Ross Couper on fiddle, Innes Watson on acoustic guitar, fiddle and vocals, Tom Salter on guitar, Norman Willmore on keyboards and sax, Innes Hutton on bass and Stuart Brown on drums. We are delighted that Peatbog Faeries will headline our Saturday evening concert on Peregrine stage.
