Aerialists

In a world where hyphenated genres are becoming the norm, all kinds of monikers are available for a contemporary folk band, Aerialists fits best with the beautifully contradictory term prog-trad. Melding their ferociously creative harmonic sensibilities with a deep love for folk traditions, expect intricately crafted instrumental folk, woven through jazz and post-rock soundscapes. Aerialists formed in early 2014 when long-time collaborators Adam Iredale-Gray (Fish & Bird) and Elise Boeur (Jenny Ritter) joined Mairi Chaimbeul (Darol Anger & The Furies). The band usually performs as a quintet, joined by exceptional bassists Nate Sabat and Wynston Minckler, and drummers including Jake Jenne, Sean Trischka, and Steven Foster.
