Based on the Isle of Skye, the Peatbog Faeries have become one of Scotlands best known names in contemporary folk music. They have taken their own individual brand of Scottish tunes to audiences around the world, from European Festivals, to Asia, Africa, America and Australia.
Here's how wikipedia describe the band... "The Peatbog Faeries are a celtic fusion band. Formed in 1994, they are based on the Isle of Skye, Scotland. Their music embodies many styles and influences, including rock, jazz, electronica, and folk - 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. The Faeries draw heavily on more traditional Scottish bands such as Silly Wizard, The Tannahill Weavers, Capercaillie, and, most notably, Shooglenifty."
Their latest album 'Peatbog Faeries Live' was recorded during the summer of 2008 it features tracks from all previous five albums and captures the unforgetable atmosphere of a Peatbogs gig.
