Aerialists is a JUNO nominated neo-folk quintet from Toronto, Canada. Their music combines a love for folk tradition with a deep desire to experiment with form. With one album under their belt, the band has already made a name for themselves with a distinctive hybrid approach to traditional music; their songs carry historical weight without ever being stale or tired.

Aerialists was formed when Adam Iredale-Gray (guitar), Elise Boeur (fiddle) & Mairi Chaimbeul (Scottish harp) were studying at Berklee College of Music. Each player had a unique musical background – Boeur had completed an intensive study in folk music at a Norwegian college, Chaimbeul had established herself as an acclaimed Scottish harpist steeped in her native Gaelic tradition, and Iredale-Gray had spent years touring North America with acclaimed folk band Fish & Bird. Joined live by top Canadian rhythm section players Steven Foster (drums) and Alan MacKie (bass), the project became their musical meeting point – where each was able to synthesize their influences into an entirely unique whole.

Aerialists are ethereal yet precise, technical yet visceral, and every song feels like a new beginning. With a second album Dear Sienna slated for release in 2020, the band adds vocals in English, Swedish, and Scottish Gaelic, winning over audiences with their graceful musicianship and restless experimentation.
