JUNO nominated neo-folk group Aerialists take a distinctive hybrid approach to folk tradition, combining deep roots in Scottish Gaelic, Norwegian, and Irish folk music with a unique post rock bent.
Their third release, 2020’s Dear Sienna, digs deeper into their distinctive prog-trad sound, inviting collaborators from Brooklyn to Gothenburg. The album took home a Canadian Folk Music Award for Pushing The Boundaries, and garnered a nomination for Roots Artist of the Year from the Western Canadian Music Awards. Aerialists are ethereal yet precise, technical yet visceral, and every song feels like a new beginning. With Dear Sienna, the band has created a love letter to those who have come before us, and those who will come after.
