The Fretless

Irish/Celtic, Traditional

We look forward to the return of this quartet which won the 2017 Juno (Canada's Grammy) for Best Instrumental Album. This unique band is taking string music to fascinating places as it transforms fiddle tunes and folk melodies into intricate, beautiful, high-energy arrangements. With the release of their debut album Waterbound in early 2012, the quartet grabbed the attention of critics and fans across many genres. After a busy year of touring and getting airplay they won 3 awards, Instrumental Album of the Year at the Western Canadian Music Awards, and at the Canadian Folk Music Awards Ensemble of the year, and Instrumental Group of the Year.
