Aerialists + Anna Anise At Crofters Rights
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. With a new album coming early 2020, the band explores new directions including vocals in English, Swedish, and Gaelic, and continues their deft balancing of history and innovation - keeping audiences hooked with their restless experimentation.
Featuring Scottish harpist Miri Chaimbeul (Darol Anger), and Canadian neo-folk innovators Adam Iredale-Gray (Fish & Bird) on guitar and Elise Boeur (Jenny Ritter) on fiddle, 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.
Their critically acclaimed 2017 album Group Manoeuvre gathered nominations for a JUNO Award and Canadian Folk Music Award for its "dazzling display of stellar musicianship, inventive arrangements, and genre-melding music". Following its release, 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 across Canada including performances at Vancouver Folk Festival, Vancouver Jazz Festival, Hillside Festival, Deep Roots Festival, Northern Lights Festival Boral, and many more.
"A veritable (prog-trad) folk super-group whose next moves promise to be extraordinary" - Folk Radio UK
