2023 sees the Peatbog Faeries’ 32nd year as a band. Exciting times lie ahead with the addition of the superbly talented Shetlander Norman Willmore on keys and alto-sax, renowned multi-instrumentalist Innes Watson on acoustic guitar, additional fiddle and vocals and one of Scotland’s top percussionists, Stu Brown on drums, percussion and programming. With their new album; ‘I See A World’ due for release in late spring, the Peatbogs are ready, with new material and a new enthusiasm, to entertain music lovers once again.

Hailing from the Isle of Skye, Peatbog Faeries are the legendary Scottish trailblazers who 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 new audiences around the world.

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, Innes Watson on fiddle, vocals and acoustic guitar, Tom Salter on guitar, Norman Willmore on keyboards and sax, Innes Hutton on bass and Stuart Brown on drums.

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.

“Nothing prepares you for the high-octane of the Peatbog Faeries. Powerful melodies are dextrously pumped out with a smart degree of techno attitude, while cross-rhythms ricochet over a heavy bass that hits you forcefully like a massive heartbeat.”  The Scotsman

“Gloriously unpredictable, a band to treasure” fRoots
