The Fretless is a unique band that takes string music to fascinating places, as it transforms fiddle tunes and folk melodies into intricate, beautiful, high-energy arrangements. The members of this Juno winning fiddle/cello quartet have come from very different traditional and contemporary music backgrounds, and are influenced by everything from jazz to classical music. However they are unified in their goal to continually develop their distinctive sound, in order to push traditional string music as far as possible into new directions. The band consists of cellist Eric Wright and fiddlers Trent Freeman, Ben Plotnick, and Karrnnel Sawitsky.
