The AERIALISTS - July 13th outdoor concert

Saturday, July 13, 2019 - 7:30pm to 10:00pm

Aerialists album"Group Manoeuvre" nominated for a Canadian Folk Music Award (Juno) in the Category of "New/Emerging Artist of the year"

Transatlantic 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 with a stellar rhythm section, the 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 returning to the studio in January, and currently booking for 2019 in the UK, western Europe, Canada, and the northeastern USA.

"A veritable (prog-trad) folk super-group whose next moves promise to be extraordinary" - David Morrison, FRUK

"Group Manoeuvre... is cunning, exhilarating and at times almost emotionally overwhelming" - Maddy Cristall, Words On Sound
