LIVE BORDERS ARTS & CREATIVITY PRESENT PEATBOG FAERIES
Hailing from the Isle of Skye, the legendaryScottish trailblazers have created a glorious mixture of traditional sounds and dance-floor grooves that have been embraced worldwide. Drawing upon a dazzling myriad of influences from jigs and reels through Dance Music,Jazz, African, and more, they bring the sound of Scotland fresh-faced and breathless to the new audiences around the world. Their mainly instrumental music allows the band to develop exciting themes and soundscapes, as well as locking into their trademark hypnotic ‘CelticDance’ sound that no-one can resist moving to!
From the moment they take to the stage, the mood is set for a no-nonsense feel-good atmosphere, each number sounding like an encore itself. The traditional styles that influence the musicians are still to be heard and when an unexpected drop-down to those glorious core melodies sneaks in the result is spine-chilling! In short, it rocks, and the audience becomes part of the experience.
The band is made up of Peter Morrison on pipes and whistles, Ross Couper on fiddle, Tom Salter on guitar, Graeme Stafford on keyboards, Innes Hutton on bass and Stuart Haikney on drums. Their famous shows become a truly memorable experience on every level for their audiences. Peatbog Faeries have become firm favourites at festivals and venues across the UK and have toured the world with their inventive and unique brand of music never failing to fill the floor and delight crowds.
