What's Happening

Four ferocious players, masterful composition and a genre-bending sound. Juno award-winning The Fretless is a Canadian quartet that has firmly taken its place on the map to a progressive form of “trad”. 

A supergroup of celebrated solo artists, The Fretless has been creating a singular and signature sound that dares to expand the idea of what a string music quartet can be — transforming fiddle tunes and folk melodies into intricate, beautiful, high-energy arrangements that have quickly gained a dedicated following and accolades from around the world. Within what appears to be a simple and classical construct — two fiddles, a viola, and a cello — The Fretless has created a sound that is distinctly rich, multi-layered, and uniquely percussive. This tonal quality is pushing traditional music to new heights, producing a completely fresh approach to folk music.  

For their appearance at The Arden Theatre, The Fretless will be featuring several songs from their album Open House, performing  half of their show with guest vocalist Madeleine Roger. You can check out a video of Madeleine and The Fretless performing Feist's "My Moon My Man" from Open House, below.
