The Fretless is the Canadian Fiddle Foursome playing an essential part in the emerging movement mainstreaming traditional Irish music. The band has won Instrumental Album Group of the Year at the Canadian Folk Music Awards in 2012.

In 2016 they took home a Juno award for Best Instrumental Album of the Year. 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 familiar with “progressive” traditional music.

“The product of brilliant musicians and composers, cross-genre influences in a modern world. The outcome is a unique voice that
is rich, fresh and diverse.” — Folk Radio UK

“The tunes are catchy and the arrangements full of imagination.” — The Herald (Scotland)
