The Peatbogs incorporate many influences which take them from traditional jigs and reels through jazz, hip hop, reggae and more.

So far they have released seven studio albums, played to audiences all over the world, and won the award for ‘Best Live Act’ at the Scottish Traditional Music Awards.

The Skye-based band is made up of Peter Morrison on pipes and whistles, Ross Couper on fiddle, Tom Salter on guitar, Graeme Stafford on keyboards, Innes Hutton on bass and Stuart Haikney on drums.

They will be making a welcome return to the Universal Hall, Findhorn, on Thursday 21st October with a start time of 8pm.

The venue points out that dancing shall be allowed and encouraged.

Government Covid guidelines will be followed.

That means patrons will be asked to wear a mask unless exempt, but there will be no social distancing.

Tickets available via universalhall.co.uk.
