The Fretless


Presented by Moving On Music in conjunction with CQAF

We’re delighted to host Canadian folk four-piece The Fretless, in association with Cathedral Quarter Arts Festival and Moving On Music. “We all come from a background of traditional music, whether it’s Canadian or Scottish or Irish roots,” the band’s fiddle and viola player Karrnnel Sawitsky told fRoots Magazine. “But along with this tradition, The Fretless aim to push boundaries,” the article continues. They “deconstruct” and “transform” their music, aiming: “to take whatever we’re doing to a different place.” Innovative and energetic, they take string music beyond expectation, transforming traditional tunes and folk melodies into intricate, beautiful, high-energy arrangements. An absolute must-see.
