CELEBRATING 25 YEARS IN 2016

We are Folk in the Barn are very very excited about this booking.  One of our favourite and one of the most exciting bands on the circuit.  We've seen and loved them at Cambridge Folk Festival and Cropredy.  It's been a long held dream to promote them ourselves. If you loved the Treacherous Orchestra recently, you'll also love the Peatbogs! 

Based on the Isle of Skye, the Peatbog Faeries are one of Scotlands  best known names in contemporary folk music, with 2016 seeing their 25th anniversary.

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, Canada and Australia. 2015 saw the band play many festivals and venues with particular highights being trips to Mexico and Azerbaijan.

They incorporate many influences which take them from traditional jigs and reels through jazz, hiphop, Reggae and more. Their inventive and unique approach always brings to their audience a true flavour of traditional Scottish music whilst offering a high octane experience - so be prepared to get on the dancefloor!
 
 
“Nothing in the recognisable front line of bagpipes, fiddles, synthesiser, bass and rhythm guitar, with a straight drum kit at the back, 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."
