The Peatbog Faeries

Hailing from the Isle of Skye, the Peatbog Faeries are the figurehead trailblazers of the Celtic Dance Music renaissance. Drawing upon a dazzling myriad of influences, from traditional jigs and reels through jazz, hip hop, reggae and more, they take traditional Scottish music and bring it fresh-faced and breathless into the 21st century. 

The Peatbogs have twice been voted “Best Live Act” at the Scottish Traditional Folk Awards, in 2005 and 2008 and in 2012 the band were nominated for “Best Live Act” at the BBC2 Folk Awards.

Their inventive and unique approach always brings to its audience a true flavour of traditional Scottish music. Their music has been used for several TV, radio and DVD soundtracks, and the band has even performed at the BBC Proms in the Park in Glasgow in collaboration with the Scottish Symphony Orchestra.

“Welcome to the weird but undoubtedly wonderful world of The Peatbog Faeries, Skye’s finest, where you should always expect the unexpected- gloriously unpredictable, a band to treasure.” – fRoots

With their new 6 piece line up, the Peatbog Faeries go back to the band’s roots with all the dynamics of the larger band, but a new, vibrant and exciting sound. This is high octane Celtic dance music as you’ve never heard it before…
