Arbelos plays folk rock with science fiction and space travel themes. The band was formed in 2007 by long time friends Mark Toner and Noel Chidwick, both astronomers, who produced the album Portraits in Stone in early 2008. They were joined briefly by Ken Grubb who contributed to the mini-album Songs of Apollo’s Children, released March 2009.

Ken has now left the happy band of shoemakers, and we have been joined by Jenny Johnson on piano, voice and keyboardy sounds and Alex Cook on percussion. The new Arbelos 4 premiered brilliantly in December 2009, and we have videos to prove it on our Youtube channel (

We are working on new material, and our live act is poised for action. Come see us on 5th June in Edinburgh, f’rinstance.

The name and logo are derived from a shape beloved by mathematicians, especially Archimedes, for its elegant properties. The shape is named after an ancient Greek shoemaker’s knife: αρβηλος pronounced ahr-bey-loss
