Afro Celt Sound System/Skipinnish/Peatbog Faeries

Formed by Grammy-nominated musician and record producer Simon Emmerson, Afro Celt Sound System is a European and African based collective which has forged a reputation for energetic, uplifting shows. Winners of the Songlines 2017 Best Group award and nominated for the same in the 2019 Awards, they combine folk traditions of different cultures in a inimitable and exuberant way.

Skipinnish are without a doubt one of Scotland’s most exciting exports.  A long-standing favourite on the Scottish folk scene, the release of their 2017 album The Seventh Wave catapulted them to new heights and brought the widespread recognition they have long deserved. With hit after hit of self-penned songs and a strong mix of powerful bagpipe, fiddle and accordion led tune sets, they encompass the very best of traditional and contemporary Scottish music.

Hailing from the Isle of Skye, legendary Scottish trailblazers Peatbog Faeries have created a glorious mixture of traditional sounds and dance-floor grooves that have been embraced worldwide. Drawing upon a dazzling myriad of influences from jigs and reels through Dance Music, Jazz, African, and more, they bring the sound of Scotland fresh-faced and breathless to new audiences around the world. This is set to be an unforgettable night!
