Pons Aelius

Friday, Saturday, Sunday

Since winning a prestigious Celtic Connections Danny Kyle Award in their early days, Pons Aelius have worked tirelessly to hone their distinctive sound on stages both at home and abroad, quickly earning themselves a reputation as one of the most exciting new names on the circuit. In September 2017, they released their much awaited debut album Captain Glen’s Comfort, to rave reviews.

“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, Folklub, RURA

“Really good stuff”- Mark Radcliffe, BBC Radio 2 Folk Show
