Jaron Freeman-Fox & The Opposite of Everything
Jaron Freeman-Fox & The Opposite of Everything
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 is capable of. Jaron's music is largely inspired by investigating the dichotomy of urban vs rural life, the connecting fabric between musical cultures, and the unique relationship between creativity and history. Having toured the world as a solo artist, bandleader, and collaborator (with artists such as Delhi2Dublin, The Good Lovelies, Ben Caplan, Tanya Tagaq, and James Kudelka to name a few) and having produced or played on over 40 albums, Freeman-Fox fuses his roots of Celtic and old-time fiddling with his study of Indian classical music and jazz, playing the 5-string violins of his late mentor; fiddle pioneer Oliver Schroer. 
 Now, after 3 years of touring, writing, recording and spelunking with his fiery band “Jaron Freeman-Fox & The Opposite of Everything”, Jaron's sophomore album is freshly released and has already garnered rave reviews and awards from colleagues and critics alike.

The Opposite of Everything:
Described as “Tom Waits playing the fiddle, backed up by the Mahavishnu Orchestra”, The Opposite of Everything transform Freeman-Fox’s intricate compositions into an infectious party, which they've now rampaged through festivals around the world, including the Vancouver Folk Fest, The Ottawa Jazz Festival, and official showcases at WOMEX in Greece and Folk Alliance International in Memphis, TN. 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.
