ST BOSWELLS Live is set to cap its most successful year to date with a night to remember.

The December show is an opportunity for everyone to take along some drinks and food, get on their feet and celebrate live music with a Christmas twist.

Headliners, 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.

For this special performance, Pons Aelius will be bringing their very best seasonal spirit to St Boswells!

After forming in mid-2014, Pons Aelius wasted no time making a name for themselves on the live circuit, winning a prestigious Danny Kyle award at Glasgow’s Celtic Connections festival in January.

Since, they have stunned audiences with headline sets at Hexham Gathering, Sage Gateshead and Dentdale Music and Beer Festival, as well as making their first overseas trip to Norway’s Rauland Internasjonale Vinterfestival.

Now in their third year as a band, Pons Aelius have toured the UK three times and established a committed following with their reputation as one of the premier live acts in the North East of England.

Captain Glen’s Comfort is the much awaited debut album from Pons Aelius.

Having been released on September 8, the album showcases the sextet’s expansive sound and unique approach to the traditional music of Britain and beyond; from fiery bagpipe jigs to tender mandolin fronted soundscapes, and everything in between.

Flautist Sam Partridge said: “Our number one priority when we were making the album was to try and record as much of the energy of our live performances as we could."

Recognising that this would be no small task, the band assembled a crack team to help them capture their enormous sound - acclaimed Piper/multi-instrumentalist Calum MacCrimmon (Breabach/Man’s Ruin/Tryst) was pivotal in the pre-production phase, whilst veteran audio-wizards Mattie Foulds and Stuart Hamilton were tasked with the mixing and mastering respectively.

There will be plenty of selections from the album played at St Boswells Live, and also a few treats to suit the time of year.

The club are also delighted to be hosting three young performers from the Scottish Borders, including recently funded recording artist, Xander Lyons.

Tickets are available priced just £10 (£6 concessions) from St Boswells Post Office or via

Doors open at 7.30pm on Saturday, December 16.
