    Item Description:

    JUNO nominated quintet Aerialists meld their ferociously creative harmonic sensibilities and deep love for folk traditions into a post-rock coloured sound called prog-trad.

    Featuring Scottish harpist Màiri Chaimbeul (Darol Anger & The Furies, Brìghde Chaimbeul), and Canadian neo-folk innovators Adam Iredale-Gray (Fish & Bird) on guitar and Elise Boeur (Jenny Ritter) on fiddle, the JUNO nominated group draws from the wells of Nordic and Gaelic music, adding expansive textures and meticulously sculpted arrangements to create captivating, genre-defying new music.

    Following the release of the new album Group Manoeuvre, the band has toured in the UK with high-profile shows at Celtic Connections in Glasgow, performed at Belgium’s renowned Muzieklub ‘t Ey, and toured in Canada including performances at Vancouver Jazz Festival, Hillside Festival, Deep Roots Festival, Northern Lights Festival Boréal, and Islands Folk Festival. Aerialists are currently booking for 2019-20 in the UK, western Europe, Canada, and the northeastern USA.

    “A veritable (prog-trad) folk super-group whose next moves promise to be extraordinary” – Folk Radio UK
    “Entire worlds seem travelled… there is a sense of urgency, lightheartedness, menace, and stillness” Spill Magazine

    Opening Local Act:

    MEGHAN LAUREL
    Meghan Laurel is a songstress of mystery woven poetry. Her hauntingly beautiful songs are carefully crafted with mellifluous melodies, dusty rose poems, and a wisdom of the elements transformed into song. Carrying stories from the open prairies of Manitoba to the ocean shore of Salt Spring Island, British Columbia, Meghan’s sound captures the feeling of folk and the spirit of storytelling.
