Faeries wear boots…
Versatile Arts and Mu Mu Audio welcome the weird but wonderful world of The Peatbog Faeries to Hellens Manor.
Taking traditional Scottish music and bringing it fresh-faced and breathless into the 21st century.
“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
Following the release of their latest album Blackhouse this legendary band will once more be back on the road in 2020 to delight audiences countrywide.
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.
They are Peter Morrison (pipes and whistles), Ross Couper (fiddle), Tom Salter (guitar), Innes Hutton (bass, percussion) Graeme Stafford (keyboards) and Stuart Haikney (drums).
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.
This is high octane Celtic dance music as you’ve never heard it before. Be prepared to dance!
