The Fretless are but just one of the many great bands to appear at the 2013 Bella Coola Music Festival.

Jackie Treehorn and The Fretless coming to 2013 Bella Coola Music Festival

Funk-a-delic and Fiddle-liscious - Jackie Treehorn and The Fretless coming to 2013 Bella Coola Music Festival

Jackie Treehorn is a funk-a-delic, soul-tastic, rock-a-phonic, six-piece sound-storm. Based in Vancouver, their funky, upbeat, original tunes simmer up a retro flavor with heavy grooves and sassy dance choreography that gets audiences up on their feet. Known for their high energy live shows and phenomenal musicianship, Jackie Treehorn turns every venue into a fun-filled explosion of a party to rock the body and the mind. Featuring four vocalists, keytar, guitar, bass and drums, the Georgia Straight called them a “funk-soul demolition crew”.

The Fretless is a unique band that is taking string music to fascinating places. Emerging from Vancouver Island, The Fretless harbors all the energy of fiddle tunes, while shattering expectations by transforming them, as well as folk melodies, into intricate, beautiful, high-energy arrangements that are gaining high acclaim all around the world.

With the release of their 2012 debut album, Waterbound, the quartet grabbed the attention of critics and fans across many genres. This recording fueled a busy summer of festivals across Canada, a month long tour of Germany in the fall, and world-wide sales and radio play. The year was capped with three awards: Instrumental Album of the Year at the Western Canadian Music Awards, and at the Canadian Folk Music Awards, both Ensemble of the Year and Instrumental Group of the Year.

We are excited to welcome Jackie Treehorn and The Fretless to our stage for the first time. See you all at the Bella Coola Music Festival, July 20-21!
