Fèis an Eilein – The Poozies

July 26 @ 7:30 pm

Skye Gathering Hall

Contemporary Scottish folk band, The Poozies, have been pushing musical boundaries for over 30 years with a whirlwind of festivals, tours and celebrity occasions. They are famous for exhilarating sets of original tunes and an eclectic mix of songs, all bursting with energy, seduction, rascality and invention.

The band is anchored by the glorious bass of the electro-harp and swings expertly between innovative tune sets featuring monster twin fiddles and powerful, punchy guitar, and a diverse range of songs with delectable 5-string banjo and luscious vocal harmonies. We can’t wait to welcome them to Fèis an Eilein!

“…vivacious, inventive instrumentals, ..brilliant, blackly comic dialect songwriting, ..arranged by the four-piece with note-perfect deadpan elegance.” Sue Wilson, The Herald

“**** ..this is high-tempo, festival-headlining stuff.”  Songlines Magazine

“…What a mighty sound they make for a four-piece! It’s both bewitching and scary, for there’s also a sinister alchemy at work between the four very different (and self-confessedly off-kilter!) musical personalities – and a keen sense of delicious mischief to boot.” fRoots Magazine

“..outstanding originals, virtuoso interpretations and unexpected arrangements take you into uncharted realms … unique spheres that need no labels.” Tim Carroll, FolkWords

“..a mischevious mix of musical mayhem, spellbinding showcase instrumentals and probably some frogs legs to boot… unencumbered by conventional folk idioms” Jon Bennet, folking.com
