Featuring Scottish harpist Màiri Chaimbeul with Canadian neo-folk innovators Adam Iredale-Gray on guitar and Elise Boeur on fiddle, this transatlantic quintet draws from the wells of Nordic and Gaelic music, adding expansive textures and meticulously sculpted arrangements to create captivating, genre-defying new music.

Joining the Aerialists for this special double bill are the Tremblers of Sevens, a power duo who serve up diametrical elements from across religious and cultural divides. They carefully pluck gems from the extensive catalogues of vintage folk, blues, and international music, then plug in, crank it up loud, and hammer the material out in a manner as Wise has previously stated “like Black Sabbath would do it.” It is truly visceral stuff, and in respect of guitar/drums duos, The White Stripes or The Black Keys this ain’t, but what it is is as raw, as vital, as real, and as punk as it gets.
