“Nothing prepares you for the high octane music of the Peatbog Faeries”

The Peatbog Faeries have been at the forefront of the Celtic Dance Music renaissance for many years, taking traditional Scottish music and bringing it into the 21st century.  They incorporate many influences which take them from traditional jigs and reels through jazz, hip hop, reggae and more.

Having won the ‘Best Live Act’ at the prestigious Scots Trad Music Awards, and been nominated for Best Live Act at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, the band have touredthe world with their inventive and unique brand of music. Their album “Peatbog Faeries Live” captures the excitement of the live band and the studio album Dust” presents the “exciting Peatbogs’ sound” that is thrilling audiences and listeners the world over.

This is high octane Celtic dance music so be prepared to dance!

“Nothing in the recognisable front line of bagpipes, fiddles, synthesiser, bass and rhythm guitar, with a straight drum kit at the back, 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

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

The Picturehouse Cafe Bar is open beforehand for delicious food and drinks.
