Celtic dance music trailblazers The Peatbog Faeries are bringing their brand of contemporary folk to the Alban Arena on June 27.

Figurehead trailblazers of the Celtic Dance Music renaissance, the group draw upon a dazzling array of influences, from traditional jigs and reels through jazz, hip hop, reggae and more, taking traditional Scottish music and bringing into the 21st Century.

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..

The Peatbog Faeries will be supported by local musician Stuart O’Connor. With four albums to his name and 1,500 shows played over seven years, ex My Pet Junkie band member Stuart’s music has been used on television and documentaries, and has been heard by audiences all over the world, as he has embarked on extensive tours of New Zealand, Japan, Australia, Europe and the UK. Tickets £17.50.

The world’s most famous ghost-hunting hound will be sniffing out clues at the Arena between June 24-26.
