Having celebrated their 25th anniversary in 2016, the Peatbog Faeries continue to create mixtures of traditional sounds and dance-floor grooves that are loved worldwide.
The band is made up of Peter Morrison on bagpipes, Ross Couper on fiddle, Tom Salter on guitar, Graeme Stafford on keyboards, Innes Hutton and last but certainly not least, Stuart Haikney on drums.
Peatbog Faeries will perform as part of Burns Night Live and we’re not shy in telling you that there’s nowhere else on earth that celebrates Burns Night quite like we do and for the first time in our history, Burns Night falls on a Friday.
Pushing the way, we celebrate Burns Night to the limits, this year’s show will invite international talent, comedians, celebrity hosts and some of Scotland’s best party animals to the world famous Spiegeltent in the name of Scotland’s Bard.
"In 2016, the band was presented with the Landmark Award by Hands Up for Trad for their 25-year contribution to Scottish Folk Music."The National
"People started asking for tapes at gigs. So, in 1994, the band put together a seven-track cassette of favourites from the live set. It sold enough copies to finance a studio-recorded demo.” “When they were invited to play at Glastonbury Festival, they made a major impression and they followed this with hit appearances at Womad. Further albums, including Welcome to Dun Vegas and Croftwork, released on their own Peatbog Records, spread the word and joining Chris Wade’s Adastra agency boosted the Peatbogs’ profile across the UK."Hands up for Trad
