PEATBOG Faeries have become firm favourites at festivals and venues across the UK, touring the world with their inventive and unique brand of music that a floor-filling delight.

In fact, according to The Scotsman, nothing actually prepares you for their high octane music.

For those who would like to sample the band's glorious mixture of traditional sounds and dance floor grooves they play Kendal's Brewery Arts Centre on Saturday (October 19).

Hailing from the Isle of Skye, the legendary Scottish trailblazers celebrated their 25th anniversary in 2016 on the back of the critically acclaimed album Blackhouse, and this year sees the release of their new live album Live@25.

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 ‘Celtic Dance’ sound that no mover or shaker can resist.

From the moment they take to the stage, the mood is set for a no-nonsense feelgood atmosphere. They tease unlikely combinations from the familiarity of instruments such as fiddle and highland pipes, blending with techno rhythms and soaring sounds that take their tunes to another plane. However, the traditional styles that influence the musicians can still to be heard.

The band's illustrious line up is Peter Morrison fronting on pipes and whistles that interplay with the amazing fiddle sounds from Ross Couper. Guitarist Tom Salter provides all that his instrument is capable of from subtle licks and chord patterns to crowd pleasing solos. The flux of Graeme Stafford’s keyboards cannot be understated as they swirl and zip through the backline machine of Innes Hutton on pounding bass and Stuart Haikney on drums that with great style hold it all together.

Sounds like a truly memorable experience on every level.
