Pons Aelius September 19, 2017

2015 Celtic Connections Danny Kyle Award Winners

Pons Aelius are an ambitious young instrumental sextet exploring the traditional and contemporary folk musics of Britain and beyond. With bold arrangements and an arsenal of instruments, the band melds age-old traditions with a fresh and innovative attitude.

Since winning a prestigious Celtic Connections Danny Kyle Award in their early days, Pons Aelius have spent the last two years tirelessly honing their sound on stages both at home and abroad, quickly earning themselves a reputation as one of the most exciting new names on the circuit.

“If you get the chance to see Pons Aelius then bloody well do it because they are bloody marvellous.” – Dan Walsh, BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards Musician of the Year Nominee, 2016.

“Pons Aelius are a testament to the strength of the North East folk scene. With a healthy share of Scots, they’re the most exciting band to come out of Newcastle in a long time. Their musical style is a wild liberation from the ordinary that fits the post-trad generation like a glove. Their original material is skillful and sincere. I can’t wait to see where they’ll be in a few years time.” – David Foley, RURA.
