Artist Folk

Transatlantic quintet Aerialists meld their ferociously creative harmonic
sensibilities and deep love for folk traditions into a post-rock coloured sound
called prog-trad. A Canadian / Scottish collaboration between guitarist Adam Iredale-
Gray (Fish & Bird), lever harpist Màiri Chaimbeul (Darol Anger & The Furies),
and fiddler Elise Boeur (Jenny Ritter) with a stellar rhythm section, the group met
when they were attending Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA. They draw
from the wells of Nordic and Gaelic music, adding expansive textures and
meticulously sculpted arrangements to create captivating, genre-defying new
music. The new album Group Manoeuvre is a powerful collection of neo-folk
compositions and stellar musicianship inhabiting a world all its own.
