The Peatbog Faeries are one of Versatile Arts favourite acts to put on. Always selling out and always putting on a rip roaring night of traditional celtic electronic fusion.
The Peatbog Faeries are a largely instrumental Celtic fusion band. Formed in 1991, they are based in Dunvegan on the Isle of Skye, Scotland.
Their music embodies many styles and influences, including folk, electronica, rock and jazz, – but their main influence is traditional celtic music. The band’s unique sound is created through a mix of programmed effects and traditional celtic arrangements, played on bagpipes, fiddles, and whistles.
The band have twice won “Live Band of the Year” at the Scottish Traditional Music Awards and were nominated for “Live Band of the Year” at the BBC Radio 2 folk awards.
