East Coast Night with Fraid Knot

Category : Events

Meet Fraid Knot – a band once dubbed by a local journalist, “western Canada’s hardest working ambassadors of contemporary Celtic music.” Influenced by the sounds of the musical pioneers who’ve journeyed down this path before, the band’s distinctive “Celt” sound is defined by the eclectic mix of musical personalities that have come together to create what we know today as Fraid Knot. Calmer than the Drop Kick Murphy’s, edgier than Great Big Sea, happier than the Pogues and still traditional enough to please the ear of many a purist, Fraid Knot truly bridges the gap between Celtic and Rock. The band is a technical, high energy group of musicians who embrace elements from Scottish, Irish and of course Canadian music to serve up their own unique “knotified” sound that is present in both original music as well as their interpretation of Celtic classics.

Always a fan favorite in the Canadian west, the release of the band’s debut album “Hoist the Sails” placed Fraid Knot firmly on the international stage with media coverage, radio play and album sales extending throughout North America, Europe, Australia and Asia. 2011’s follow up recording entitled “A Pint of Trad” was a nod to the band’s roots and their mutual love of traditional Celtic music.  Originally intended to be solely “cover” songs, one original, (the gentle lament, “Meet Me Tonight”) snuck on to the disc as it fit stylistically.  In a testament to the bands strong songwriting, this track has become the unofficial single from this endeavor and has been warmly embraced by fans and radio stations alike.

Despite the widespread interest of the last two albums, the bands live show is still the basis for the Knot’s continual success.  The high energy and incredible tempo of their performance combined with the groups musical abilities and flawless vocal harmonies give a polished, professional show that continues to captivate their audiences over a decade into their celebrated career.  Fraid Knot has truly stood the test of time and shows no signs of slowing down…
