2019 JUNO AWARD NOMINEES FOR INSTRUMENTAL ALBUM OF THE YEAR

In a world where hyphenated genres are becoming the norm, all kinds of monikers are available for a contemporary folk band – post-folk, trad-core, alt-roots. File under World, or file under Celtic? Aerialists fits best with the beautifully contradictory term prog-trad, melding their ferociously creative harmonic sensibilities with a deep love for folk traditions. The transatlantic quintet draws from the wells of Nordic and Gaelic music, adding expansive post-rock textures and meticulously sculpted arrangements to create captivating, genre-defying new music.

Nominated for a 2019 JUNO Award for Instrumental Album of the Year and a 2018 Canadian Folk Music Award for Emerging Artist of the Year, their new album Group Manoeuvre is a powerful collection of neo-folk compositions and imaginative arrangements of traditional material, with haunting guest vocals from Emily Millard.

“Group Manoeuvre is a dazzling display of stellar musicianship, inventive arrangements, and genre-melding music inhabiting a world of its own.” – Folk Radio UK
