Every now and then a really unusual band comes around and blows away all your critical senses with music so distinctive it really does leave you wondering how they create such delights.

Such are the Peatbog Faeries who conjure such a cross pollination of styles that it is hard to know where to begin with a description. However, in the interests of this preview I’ll have a go. …If a Stax brass section had played psychedelic techno ceilidh fronted by a pagan piper … oh what’s the use? There is nothing in the slightest that is fey or fairy about this crew, instead they’re a glorious mash up of Scottish roots and just about everything else you care to throw in the blender.

“Welcome to the weird but undoubtedly wonderful world of The Peatbog Faeries, Skye’s finest, where you should always expect the unexpected. Gloriously unpredictable, a band to treasure.”  – fRoots

Rumour has it that when they played Glastonbury they even managed to make pop publication NME miss a set by no less than REM to stay and dance a Highland Fling.

“Imagine The Orb meeting a ceilidh band in the mind of Irvine Welsh. This is it! Billy Nasty may have mixed pipes and dance on the decks but the Peatbog Faeries can play it live and it blew the audience away.” – Edinburgh Evening News

They’ve a new live album’ Peatbog Faeries Live’ which is aural fireworks from the moment you push play, but there can be no substitute for getting out there and experiencing them first hand.
