Faeland’s music is beautiful, enchanting, uplifting, technically impressive and extremely accessible. Faeland have audiences singing along and being moved instantaneously, regardless of whether or not you have heard their music before; There is something in the words and melodies which goes deeper than the everyday, touching on the mystical and the unspoken. The songs are performed on acoustic guitars, double bass, accordion, banjo, charango, violins, lush vocals and Celtic harp.

Imagine the naturalness and earth of Martha Tilston combined with the instantly appeal of Fleetwood Mac, plus all the heart and sensuality of a modern day Kate Bush.
