The Fretless Masterclass and Performance with Madeleine Roger

Govan and Linthouse Parish Church

Glasgow, Scotland

From: May 11th 2024
to: May 11th 2024

Juno award-winning folk music group The Fretless masterclass and performance live in Govan with singer-songwriter Madeleine Roger as part of their Scotland tour.

Within what appears to be a simple construct — two fiddles, a viola, and a cello — The Fretless has created a sound that is distinctly rich, multi-layered, and uniquely percussive. This tonal quality is pushing traditional music to new heights, producing a completely fresh approach to Folk music.

Madeleine Roger’s critically-acclaimed debut album Cottonwood combines the elegant storytelling of folk traditions with the grounded vibe of roots music. It is a collection of songs that reflect on femininity and equality, the majesty of the wilderness, and the beautiful awkwardness of trying to love another person.
