 Shows take place at Victoria Hall, Saltaire

 

 

7.45pm Sun 15th May

The PEATBOG FAERIES  £15

.

 

The Isle of Skye's Peatbog Faeries are the outstanding act in Celtic dance music, the undisputed traiblazers in their field. Their music is high octane stuff, not for the fainthearted - pipes, whistles & fiddle swirl in a blizzard of electronic beats and hypnotic instrumental workouts

Several times year they burst out from Skye at full throttle, electrifying audiences wherever they go, before retreating to the island to recharge, recover and brew up yet more instrumental wizardry ready for their next foray out.

This is music made for dancing, so as ever when the Peatbog Faeries visit, this will be a standing show, though with seating available in the balcony.


8pm Thurs 23rd June

TREACHEROUS ORCHESTRA - £15

 

Another musical tour de force from Scotland - if you enjoy our show in May with the Peatbog Faeries, you may wish to come back for more from Treacherous Orchestra, the latest phenomenon in celtic dance music.

11 musicians from the younger generation of Scottish bands, Teacherous Orchestra are an exuberant, no holds barred onslaught of fiddles, pipes, flutes, banjos et al backed by a full electric band.

Definitely Scottish music for the 21st Century - to borrow a sporting phrase, Treacherous Orchestra are a band who don't bring anything back into the dressing room at the end - everything is given onstage, with nothing held back for tomorrow.
As with The Peatbog Faeries show in May, this is primarily a standing show, with seating available just in the balcony
