SUMMER SERIES: The Fretless (CANADA)
As part of Rosny Farm’s Summer Series of events, Clarence City Council is pleased to be partnering with Cygnet Folk Festival in showcasing International Act The Fretless direct from Canada with a special one off intimate performance in Rosny Barn straight from their weekend away in Cygnet. Supported by local folk superstar Jed Appleton.
Winners of the 2017 JUNO for Instrumental Album of Year, The Fretless is a new approach to folk music. They may look like a string quartet, but with their unique balance of fiddle, viola, cello, rhythm and melody, they shatter all expectations. The fiddle tradition runs deep and their roots are based in Celtic and Canadian fiddle styles. Taking traditional music to a new level, The Fretless transform fiddle tunes and folk melodies into intricate, beautiful, high-energy and innovative arrangements. Progressive chamber trad at its best!
