Contorting the violin into new traditions, violinist/composer Jaron Freeman-Fox dances down the fine line between the beautiful and the ridiculous, while redefining what the violin can do. Having produced or played on over 40 albums (Teresa Doyle, Jayme Stone, Autorickshaw) and toured the world many times over as a solo artist, bandleader or collaborator with bands such as Delhi 2 Dublin, Ben Caplan, and Sam Lee, Freeman-Fox fuses his roots of fiddling with his study of Indian classical music and jazz, while playing the 5-string violins of his late mentor; fiddle pioneer Oliver Schroer.

In 2013, after 3 years of touring, writing, recording and spelunking with his fiery band Jaron Freeman-Fox & The Opposite of Everything, the group’s new album has was released into the wild and greeted by enthusiastic reviews, radio play around the world, and 3 Canadian Folk Music Awards!

Folks may be intrigued by the fact that JFF has performed for 100,000 people and the young royal couple on Parlimant hill, or that the Canadian Embassy was kind enough (or foolish enough) to send him off to collaborate with a troupe of nomadic Rajasthani gypsies at the Delhi International Arts Festival, or that his debut album “Manic Almanac : Slow Möbius” won an Independent Music Award, or that he’s shared the stage with Delhi2Dublin, Tanya Tagaq, and James Kudelka. Jaron however, is most proud of the fact that he’s broken three different fiddles on stage and zero bones, had his violin stolen by monkeys in Bali and got it back without contracting rabies, and has the honour of featuring his absolute favourite musicians in the world, in his band The Opposite of Everything.
