Based on the Isle of Skye, the Peatbog Faeries are one of the best known names in Scottish contemporary folk music.
In 2012 they were a nominee for "Best Live Act" at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, having already twice won "Live Act of the Year" at the Scottish Traditional Music Awards. They've taken their own individual brand of Scottish tunes to audiences around the world, from European Festivals, to Asia, Africa, America, Canada and Australia. The Peatbogs have recorded six studio albums. From headlining the Avalon Stage at Glastonbury to representing Scotland in Sri Lanka for the Commonwealth Games bid, the Faeries are an intrinsic part of current Scottish culture.
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. One thing is for sure - there's never a dull moment in a Faeries show!
