Hailing from the Isle of Skye, The Peatbog Faeries are renowned for their inventive blend of traditional Scottish jigs and reels with contemporary dance music, drawing inspiration from jazz, pop, techno and more.

The group is confident in their style, making music which is original, upbeat and intense in the best possible way, but are always eager to develop and grow.

This year marks the Peatbog Faeries’ 31st year as a band, and they are ready to shake things up. Exciting times lie ahead with the addition of the superbly talented Shetlander Norman Willmore on keys and alto sax, renowned multi-instrumentalist Innes Watson on acoustic guitar, fiddle and vocals and the incomparable Stu Brown on drums, electronics and percussion. Making up the rest of the band is Peter Morrison on pipes and whistles, Ross Couper on fiddle and vocals, Tom Salter on guitar and Innes Hutton on bass.

Having had a quiet two years, the Peatbogs are ready, with new material and a new enthusiasm, to entertain music lovers once again. When performed live, each of their tracks has the soul and intensity of a highly-anticipated encore; this is a band that knows how to work a crowd, build suspense and ultimately let it rip.

Peter Morrison of The Peatbog Faeries said: “We are delighted to be performing at Beat Generator Live! this autumn thanks to Scotland on Tour. It’s a fantastic initiative for the Scottish music scene and we can’t wait to have a fantastic night of music and dancing with the community of Dundee, and show them what we’re all about!”

Scotland on Tour will take place over a period of 12 months between April 2022 and 2023. It supports the creation of hundreds of concerts and performances at much-loved arts centres, town halls and community venues across Scotland. More than 120 artists are set to perform at more than 100 venues across the country as part of the initiative.

The project, which has been created and managed by Active Events, was made possible by £750,000 of Scottish Government backing and will focus on increasing the number of opportunities to showcase and enjoy live music, while bringing exciting acts to the doorstep of city, towns, villages and rural communities.

The year-long Scotland on Tour bill includes both emerging and established artists with genre-spanning acts appearing across the breadth and width of the country, with rock, pop, jazz, classical, folk, trad and acoustic genres all being showcased.
