One of the most exciting bands of the moment, Peat & Diesel have gone from Stornoway to stardom in an extraordinary eighteen month rise.
No-one could have imagined a fisherman, an electrician and a delivery driver – who only got a band together so they could play a couple of gigs down the local pub – would a year later be selling out the legendary Glasgow Barrowlands in four minutes flat. A second sold-out Barrowlands date was soon to follow, and a debut UK tour sold out months in advance with over 6000 tickets sold.
Peat & Diesel’s down-to-earth tales of island life, rip-roaring tunes and crowd-pleasing live shows have won converts far and wide, and they’re just getting started.
The boys are back this autumn for the Giving It Laldy tour. That’s Boydie on guitar and vocals, Uilly on drums and Innes on the box.
Authentic, electrifying and unlike anything you’ve seen before… that’s the way we do it in the Western Isles.
