Boundary pushing and genre defying Canadian string quartet The Fretless meld the worlds of Celtic folk and chamber music into an amazing and truly unique sound.

Already two-time winners at the Western Canadian Music Awards and four-time winners at the Canadian Folk Music Awards, the band took home a Juno - Canada’s biggest music award - in 2107 for their most recent album.

Playing the instruments of a classical string quartet, the members of The Fretless are fundamentally folk musicians, well versed in the traditions and styles, but with extensive technical training and chamber music experience. Through their deconstruction of the usual rhythmic, harmonic and structured arrangements of fiddle styles, the band are taking traditional music to fascinating new places turning fiddle tunes and folk melodies into intricate, beautiful, high-energy pieces and breathtaking performances.
