Freeman nominated for CFMA

Local musician Trent Freeman has just been nominated as Solo Instrumental Artist of the Year the Canadian Folk Music Awards

Local musician Trent Freeman has just been nominated as Solo Instrumental Artist of the Year the Canadian Folk Music Awards (CFMA).

His Rock, Paper, Scissors CD was produced by Paul Keim at his Dove Creek Studios and the music is an exciting, and jazzy, a departure from traditional fiddle music.

Freeman’s string quartet, The Fretless, has also been nominated in three categories including Instrumental Group of the Year.

It has been an exciting start to the fall season as the band just won Best Instrumental Album for their new CD Waterbound at the Western Canadian Music Awards.

The CFMA awards ceremony takes place in St. John, N.B. in November. Trent won’t be able to attend, as the band will be on an extensive tour in Germany through October and November.
