About this event:
Emily Millard is a Canadian singer-songwriter whose unique blend of art-folk has been called “inventive,” “haunting” and “beautifully ethereal.” Alchemically combining poetry with vintage keys, steel strings and found-instruments, Emily braves the space between silence and sound with her unmistakable voice.
Over the past ten years, Emily has released four records under the moniker Miss Emily Brown. Her new full-length record, By Heron & By Season, released in Canada in October 2016 and Europe in February 2017, is her first release under her birth name.
Written on a remote island on Canada’s west coast, By Heron & By Season is a colourful journey into the depths of memory and dreamscape.
In a world where hyphenated genres are becoming the norm, all kinds of monikers are available for a contemporary folk band – post-folk, trad-core, alt-roots. File under World, or file under Celtic.
Aerialists fit best with the beautifully contradictory term prog-trad, melding their ferociously creative harmonic sensibilities with a deep love for folk traditions.
Featuring guitarists Adam Iredale-Gray (Fish and Bird) Scottish harpist Mairi Chaimbeul (Darol Anger and the Furies) and fiddler Elise Boeur (Jenny Ritter), Aerialists draw from the wells of Nordic and Gaelic music, adding expansive post-rock textures and meticulously sculptured arrangements to create captivating genre-defying new music.
