Event Notes

× The Fretless (who played as part of the 2017-18 season) is the Canadian fiddle foursome playing an essential part in the emerging movement mainstreaming traditional Irish folk music.



Starting with its debut album in 2012, the band has steadily pushed further into the public eye, winning Instrumental Album of the Year at the Western Canadian Music Awards and Instrumental Group of the Year at the Canadian Folk Music Awards. Its 2014 tune Waiving To Ryan has topped a million Spotify plays, and in 2017, The Fretless took home a Juno™ award for Instrumental Album of The Year for its most recent full-length Bird’s Nest.

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.
