The Fretless

12 September 2019
5:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Feast and Field Market

Join on the Farm for an evening of food and fun with BarnArts Music Series presenting Canadian Sensation, The Fretless, featuring Barnard/ Pomfret’s own Eric Wright.

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 life 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.
