Mellowosity is the debut studio album by Scottish Celtic fusion group Peatbog Faeries, released in 1996 on Greentrax Recordings. After forming as a vocal-based Celtic rock group in 1994, the duo had settled into becoming an instrumental Celtic fusion group by the release of Mellowosity. The album draws from a wide range of musical styles and influences including jazz, reggae, afrobeat, rock, Eastern music, dub and funk, that are mixed in with the band's traditional Scottish folk/Celtic sound featuring fiddles and bagpipes. The album was released in December 1996 to positive critical reviews. Dave Steger of Allmusic praised the eclectic sound of the album, and Marshall Anderson of The Living Tradition said "overall texture is thrilling and full of the unexpected." The album remains one of Greentrax Recording's best-selling ever albums. The band would tour the album throughout the rest of the 1990s before recording its follow-up record, Faerie Stories, in 1999.
