Blurb: The Juno Awards honor the best in Canadian music and in April 2017 Canada’s multiaward winning quartet THE FRETLESS was added to that iconic list of musicians when their third release, BIRD’S NEST, was awarded INSTRUMENTAL ALBUM OF THE YEAR. THE FRETLESS is a new approach to folk music that has been gaining high acclaim around the world. This unique band is taking string music to fascinating places as it transforms fiddle tunes and folk melodies into intricate, beautiful, high-energy arrangements. Released in 2016, at the renowned Kölner Philharmonie (Colgne, Germany), BIRD’S NEST, has quickly risen to become their most successful offering to date. Continuing The Fretless’ trajectory into the creative stratosphere, this completely instrumental release was composed and inspired by events, people and places connected to the band. While each song tells a story and has its own musical arc, the commitment to mastery of their instruments and a playful, creative artistry shows throughout the recording. The Loft is delighted to host this exciting young band.
