Peatbog Faeries create a glorious mixture of traditional sounds and dance-floor grooves drawing upon a dazzling myriad of influences from jigs and reels through Dance Music, Jazz, African, and more, bringing the sound of Scotland fresh-faced and breathless to audiences around the world. No-one can resist moving to their trademark hypnotic ‘Celtic Dance’ sound.
From the moment they take to the stage, the mood is set for a no-nonsense feel-good atmosphere. They tease unlikely combinations from the familiarity of instruments such as fiddle and highland pipes, blending with techno rhythms and soaring sounds and take this to another plane, with the traditional styles that influence the musicians still heard.
Joining will be The Shee, who bring Electro-harp, accordion, fiddles, flute, mandolin and three powerful voices together with a range of individual musical influences to produce an adventurous brew of Folk, Gaelic and American music. The Shee are previous nominees of Best Live Act at the MG Alba Scots Trad Awards and includes the BBC Radio Folk Award Musician of the Year, Rachel Newton amongst its ranks.
