Peatbog Faeries in Baku

The opening of the 3d "Eurovillage 2015" was hosted in Azerbaijan's Baku on Sept. 19, and was attended by the ambassadors of several EU countries. The European Union's event, which took place in Baku's Icheri Sheher, intended to introduce European traditions and culture for Baku residents. The British Council invited the high octane Celtic dance band Peatbog Faeries to play at the EuroVillage in Baku. Peatbog Faeries closed the concert and took the old city by storm. The band’s blend of traditional folk elements, including bagpipes, with more contemporary dance beats got the crowd dancing and won them many admirers in Baku.
