Peatbog Faeries are coming to Nells for an intimate live show!
2023 saw the Peatbog Faeries 32nd year as a band. Exciting times lie ahead with the addition on 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 released in spring 2023, the Peatbogs are ready, with new materiel and a new enthusiasm, to entertain music lovers once again.
Hailing from the Isle of Skye, the legendary Scottish trailblazers 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 the 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 Stu Brown on drums.
