Taking traditional Scottish music and bringing it fresh-faced and breathless into the 21st century, this is high octane Celtic dance music as you’ve never heard it before.

Hailing from the Isle of Skye and drawing upon a dazzling myriad of influences from traditional jigs and reels through jazz, hip hop, reggae and more, the Peatbog Faeries are the figurehead trailblazers of the Celtic Dance Music renaissance.

They have toured the world taking their inventive and unique brand of music and light show to audiences far and wide, never failing to fill the floor and delight the crowd.

Peter Morrison (pipes and whistles), Ross Couper (fiddle), Tom Salter (guitar), Innes Hutton (bass, percussion) Graeme Stafford (keyboards) and Stuart Haikney (drums).

“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

“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
