THE FRETLESS is the Canadian ensemble playing an essential part in the emerging movement mainstreaming traditional music, and connecting traditional styles with diverse audiences around the world.
Through its deconstruction and transformation of the usual rhythmic, harmonic and structured arrangements of fiddle styles around the world, The Fretless is pushing traditional music to a new place, and has now issued itself an atypical challenge in the mission to find and convert fans unfamiliar with “progressive” traditional music.
“Transforming string music into intricate, beautiful, high-energy
arrangements, Canada’s The Fretless have become flawless musical
acrobats and Juno award winners.” - Martin Hutchinson, Progradar
