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.
Pons Aelius played to a packed out audience at the Bath Folk Club last year and have been winning many accolades, including the Danny Kyle Award at Celtic Connections. They play Celtic music of the highest magnitude with dynamic arrangements between the Highland pipes flutes, whistles, strings and percussion. The musicians are always having a huge amount of fun, which means that every gig becomes a huge party. In the line up is Bath’s own Tom Kimber, who first performed at the Bath Folk Club as a teenager. It was obvious then that he was set for a great path in music!
This event is organised by Art at the Heart of the RUH. Art at the Heart supports the RUH Bath with an award winning art and design programme that stimulates healing and well-being and creates an uplifting environment for patients, visitors and staff.
