Featuring Scottish harpist Mairi Chaimbeul, and Canadian neo-folk innovators Adam Iredale-Gray on guitar and Elise Boeur on fiddle, Aerialists draws from the wells of Nordic and Gaelic music, adding expansive textures and meticulously sculpted arrangements to create captivating, genre-defying new music.
The JUNO nominated quintet meld their ferociously creative harmonic sensibilities and deep love for folk traditions into a post-rock coloured sound called prog-trad. With a new album coming in early 2020, the band explores new directions including vocals in English, Swedish, and Gaelic, and continues their deft balancing of history and innovation, keeping audiences hooked with their restless experimentation.
Sarah Jane Scouten
New gal in town, Canadian Sarah Jane Scouten's music delivers a signature mix of vintage folk and country music, with modern sounds and subjects. An ever expanding palette brings a freshness to her brand of ambient indie Americana -- or "space-country" as she likes to call it. It's as relevant to today as it is rooted in the music of her forebears. Touring throughout North America and Europe, this seasoned performer boasts a top-notch live band and considerable acclaim for her last three full-length albums.
She has just released her fourth album, "Confessions", a further exploration of Americana sounds and song forms.
Sarah Jane Scouten
Montreal based Sarah Jane is a songwriter faithful to the bluegrass and old time folk tradition but not afraid to tackle hard modern themes such as homelessness, alongside tongue-in-cheek heartache songs and doses of unabashed Canadiana. Sarah Jane pairs sturdy, infectious melodies with lyrics that are candid, poignant and flirtatious, and “a flair for tying emotions to arresting images.” (Penguin Eggs) She now travels all over North America to festivals and workshops, gaining insight and inspiration from contemporary and traditional folk musicians, as well as an ever-expanding collection of stringed instruments.
