Jaron Freeman Fox – The Opposite of Everything

August 21 7-10pm, August 22 630-10pm
Alderney Landing Mainstage


Jaron Freeman-Fox’s musical roots are in Celtic and bluegrass fiddling, in his electrifying performances, he fuses traditional fiddle with Indian classical music and jazz. Contorting the violin into new traditions, Freeman-Fox and his band The Opposite of Everything, dances down the fine line between the beautiful and the ridiculous, while redefining what the violin is capable of. He has been described as the “Jimi Hendrix of the violin” by some, and plays world music in the truest sense of the word—taking inspiration from everywhere he goes. With the ability to transition from Gypsy to Klezmer to Celtic to Country without skipping a beat, The Opposite of Everything is an infectious party! The line-up consists of New Orleans-style clarinetist John Williams, electro-pop klezmer accordionist Robbie Grunwald, jazz bassist Charles James, and drummer Dan Stadnicki. After three busy years of playing folk, jazz and world music festivals (including performances at the Vancouver Folk Fest, The Ottawa Jazz Festival, and official showcases at WOMEX in Greece and Folk Alliance International in Memphis, TN) the band will be touring coast-to-coast again this summer, then heading overseas for their first full European tour this fall, now with their eagerly-awaited new album!
