Pons Aelius

After crossing paths in the northern city of Newcastle Upon Tyne, six musicians began to share tunes, eventually forming the powerhouse of progressive instrumental folk that is Pons Aelius. Motivated by a collective enthusiasm and desire to share their distinctive style of music, the band have extensively toured the UK and Europe, bringing their much loved live energy to stages such as Celtic Connections, Towersey Festival and Priddy Folk Festival. During this time, they have recorded two studio albums- 2017’s Captain Glen’s Comfort and 2019’s Fire Under the Bridge which were both released to critical acclaim and featured on radio shows around the world, including the BBC Radio 2 Folk show with Mark Radcliffe.
