24th January – The Aerlialists

The Aerialists meld their ferociously creative harmonic sensibilities and deep love for folk traditions into a jazz-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.

“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
