A Peatbog Faeries gig is an unforgettable experience that invariably results in euphoric audience response. Expect hefty dance grooves, fused with rousing pipes, articulate whistling and breath-taking fiddle. Underpin this with a back line that provides a musical foundation that raises the game and spirits still further.

If you’re looking for a vibrant, powerful and inspirational dance sound – rooted in the ethereal musical legacy of the Isle of Skye – the answer is right here.


The Peatbogs’ set won’t be the very end of the festival evening; watch out for a free bar session afterwards featuring another of the Big Whistle Festival’s bands. Stick around to join in or just listen and enjoy.
