Based on the Isle of Skye, the Peatbog Faeries are one of Scotland’s best-known names in contemporary folk music. 2016 saw their 25th anniversary, and in June the band were presented with the Landmark award for their contribution to Scottish music by Hands Up For Trad, who bring us the Scottish Traditional Music Awards.
In 2015 the band released their eighth album to great critical acclaim, with Blackhouse being nominated for ‘Album of the Year’ at the Scottish Traditional Music Awards. In 2012 they were a nominee for ‘Best Live Act’ at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, having already twice won ‘Live Act of the Year’ at the Scottish Traditional Music Awards, along with a further nomination in 2014.
They’ve taken their own individual brand of Scottish tunes to audiences around the world, from European Festivals, to Asia, Africa, America, Mexico, Canada and Australia.
