Peat & Diesel EAT Documentary wins International Award

A BBC ALBA documentary about Hebridean folk-rock band Peat & Diesel has won a major award at a New York film festival.

Peat & Diesel: That’s The Way We Do It! received the prize for International Documentary Feature at the long-running Williamsburg International Film & Music Festival in Brooklyn, New York.

Produced by MacTV, the programme follows the Stornoway band as they gain momentum and fame ahead of the launch of their second album and a landmark gig at the legendary Glasgow venue, the Barrowland Ballroom.

Peat & Diesel, comprising of fisherman Calum ‘Boydie’ Macleod, electrician Innes Scott and delivery van driver Uilleam ‘Uilly’ Macleod, have taken the Scottish music scene by storm, capturing the country’s imagination through their infectious music and unique tales of island life.

The documentary was a huge success on BBC ALBA when it aired in early April, as part of an evening of Peat & Diesel music and antics which drew one of the biggest audiences of the year.
