Ross Couper and Tom Oakes are a fiddle and guitar Duo, deeply rooted in the
traditions of Scotland and Ireland, but with a vital modernity, which reflects
their musical experiences to date.
The explosive fiddle playing of Ross Couper, from Shetland, is the foundation
stone of the mighty Peatbog Faeries. Originally from Devon, but now based in
Edinburgh, Tom Oakes is a multi award-winning guitarist, flautist and
composer, who was a founder member of the genre-defying Auvo Quartet.
Over the past seven years, Ross and Tom have played three sell-out concerts at
Celtic Connections, as well as touring Australia, Scandinavia and Europe. Expect
their Concert at Montrose Playhouse to feature their trademark unrivalled
energy and virtuosity, interspersed with moments of spine-tingling beauty, as
well as a warmth and humour, which guarantees a smile on the face.
