Skye-based contemporary folksters, Peatbog Faeries, present a rip-roaring display of musical wizardry. Sit still? No chance when these multi-award-winners get rocking with their fiddles, pipes, whistles, drums, guitars, sax, keyboard and vocals. Having thrilled audiences worldwide, collecting jazz, pop, techno, African and other influences en-route, they’ve twice been voted Scots Live Band of the Year. Never guilty of standing still, they’re shaking things up with fresh music and an enhanced line-up. Nothing prepares you for these guys’ high-octane music, says the Scotsman. You’ve been warned. 

Renowned for their tight, lightning-fast playing and huge sound, Mec Lir are licenced to electrify with their inventive mash-up of keyboard, fiddle, drum, synthesiser and bouzouki. The Isle-of-Man/Glasgow-based quartet say their aim is “to create music that allows the listener to feel happy and have a good time”. Word is, they deliver in spades. “How supercharged can Celtic music be?” marvelled one reviewer. Celtic Connections audiences are about to find out.
