High-octane evening jigging its way to Huntingdon Hall

Worcester Editorial 27th Mar, 2014 Updated: 19th Oct, 2016

AN EVENING of modern Celtic dance music is set to jig into Huntingdon Hall in Worcester next month.

Peatbog Faeries, which takes place on Saturday (April 5), incorporates influences, taking them from traditional jigs and reels to jazz, hip hop, reggae and more.

The audience can expect a true flavour of traditional Scottish music with high octane Celtic dance bringing it fresh-faced and breathless into the 21st Century.

Nothing in the front line of bagpipes, fiddles, synthesiser, bass and rhythm guitar with a drum kit at the back of the stage, prepares you for the high energy music of Peatbog Faeries.

Powerful melodies are pumped out with a smart degree of techno attitude while cross-rhythms ricochet over a heavy bass that hits the audience like a big heart beat.

Peatbog Faeries comprise of Peter Morrison on pipes and whistles, Ross Couper on fiddle, Tom Salter on guitar, Innes Hutton on bass and percussion, Graeme Stafford on keyboards and Stuart Haikney on drums.

These incredible musicians have toured the world taking their inventive and unique brand of music and light show to audiences far and wide, never failing to fill the floor.

The front rows at Huntingdon Hall will even be removed for dancing.

This is high octane Celtic dance music as you’ve never heard it before.

The show starts at 8pm. Tickets are £16, or £14 for concessions. To book call the box office on 01905 611427.
