The Peatbog Faeries
The undisputed figurehead trailblazers of Celtic dance music, Peatbog Faeries have developed a truly unique sound, wantonly combining the sounds of traditional Celtic music with the beats and grooves of the urban club. Each year they burst out from their island home on Skye to electrify venues and festivals across the UK and beyond with their latest brew of instrumental wizardry. Fiddle, pipes & whistles swirl in a blizzard of electronic beats & hypnotic psychedelic workouts as Peatbog Faeries set the room ablaze.
Twice winners of best Live Act at the Scottish Folk Awards, It is not without good reason that Peatbog Faeries have become firm favourites at festivals across the world, with their unique sound – bold, unashamed & made for dancing. Not for the fainthearted, this is Scottish music for the 21st Century.
Introducing the bishops of bounce, the sorcerers of skank, the undisputed masters of Scottish death reggae, the one and only Bombskare – the closest thing you’ll see to an actual northern powerhouse.
This nine headed ska demon has been tearing up stages the length and breadth of the British Isles since before The Crusades. Reaching zero to sixty skanking miles from a standing start, they combine …top quality dance-along songs with incredible punctuality – leaving every stage like Tokyo following a visit from Godzilla.
Renowned for their technical prowess as much as their infectious ska anthems, they combine lush, three-part harmonies with choppy guitar attacks and an explosive horn section to truly blow the audience away.
One thing these guys know about getting a crowd to dance is everything..
