Music in the Chamber: The Fretless

Multi-Juno award-winning Canadian supergroup The Fretless continue to grow in stature around the world, seen by many as one of the most powerfully charged forces on the roots music circuit.

It took the release of the superb Bird’s Nest album to win them the attention they deserved on this side of the Atlantic. Consistently given four and five-star ratings, Songlines magazine loved its “plethora of thrilling moments” while fRoots magazine placed them “in the elite category.” RNR magazine said it was “high quality, inventive and absolutely full of life and energy.”

They rocked Celtic Connections with stunning shows in 2018 and emerged triumphant from Shetland Folk festival too, after releasing the superb Live From The Art Farm CD, which has also been nominated for another Juno Award in the Best Album category.

Karrnnel Sawitsky, Trent Freeman, Ben Plotnick and Eric Wright are each musicians at the top of their game and held in the highest regard by their peers.

The band is one of the main headline acts at this year’s big TradFest in Edinburgh.
