Celtic Dance Trailblazers
Hailing from the Isle of Skye, the Peatbog Faeries have created a unique and glorious mix of traditional sounds and dance-floor grooves. Their mainly instrumental music allows the band to develop exciting themes and soundscapes, including their trademark hypnotic ‘Celtic Dance’, which brings the sound of Scotland fresh-faced and breathless to the new audiences around the world.
“Nothing prepares you for the high octane music 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 heart beat.” (The Scotsman).
Peatbog Faeries tease unlikely combinations from familiar instruments such as fiddle and highland pipes, blending them with techno rhythms and soaring sounds. The traditional styles, jigs and reels that influence the musicians can still be heard, enriched with flashes of Dance music, Jazz, African music and reggae.
This is high octane Celtic dance music as you’ve never heard it before...
"Imagine The Orb meeting a ceilidh band in the mind of Irvine Welsh.” (Edinburgh Evening News).
The band have become firm favourites at festivals and venues, filling the floor and delighting crowds with their inventive and unique brand of music for over 25 years.
The Peatbog Faeries will be at The Apex on Thursday 24 October at 8pm, see www.theapex.co.uk or ring 01284 758000 for more information or to book tickets.
