The Fretless is a young and innovative band that melds the worlds of celtic, folk and chamber music into an amazing and unique sound they like to call rad trad. They may look like a string quartet, but with innovative arrangements and roots deeply based in Celtic and Canadian fiddle styles, The Fretless is creating their own unique path in the music world.

It’s not uncommon for a modern string quartet to play some crossover material, but what The Fretless does is different. They aren’t a classical quartet playing arrangements of folk tunes, but a celtic band with a twist! Playing the instruments of a classical string quartet, the members of The Fretless are fundamentally folk musicians, who know the traditions and styles, but also happen to have extensive technical training and chamber music experience.

With their titles and abilities, they have all had very successful careers as solo performers with their own bands, as well as being highly in demand as teachers. The members of The Fretless are also in demand as sidemen with other well known bands and artists.

The Fretless is a lethal supergroup that is a force to be reckoned with on the folk music scene!
