The musicality and virtuousity of Jaron Freeman Fox and Simon Nyberg at the final Gallery Gig for 2018 was spell binding! Thank you for playing a gig in Benalla, Jaron and Simon - and thank you Michaela Alexander for organizing such a memorable program of 'Gallery Gigs' in 2018!
"He plays violin like a knowing child: playfully, impulsively and hyperactively, and yet with an improbable, idiosyncratic virtuosity that has been set alight by his wide-ranging listening and studying. … while his singing is infused with the same knowingness, whether whispered, loud, crooned or seething with humour."
---– John Shand, The Sydney Morning Herald
Jaron Freeman-Fox (fiddle, viola d’amore) and Simon Nyberg (Swedish twelve-string guitar) (Check out some video clips of Jaron and Simon below)
Scandinavian explorations, Siberian extrapolations, Balkan exacerbations, and Indian interpolations!
Souls bared, secrets shared, and ways fared.

"Jaron Freeman-Fox is a live looping violinist. Bred in the mountains of Canada’s northwest, and steeped in study under the great traditional musicians of India, Scandinavia, and Siberia, Jaron Freeman-Fox redefines what his instrument is capable of, and gives the listener no choice but to take his unique refraction of world music on it’s own terms.
Jaron’s singular style was encouraged from an early age as an apprentice of Canada’s renowned fiddle pioneer, the late Oliver Shroer, who’s violin Jaron still plays. Jaron went on to study Carnatic classical music in South India under Dr. M Narmadha, hardanger fiddle in Norway under Jan Beitohaugen Granli, Swedish fiddle in Skåne under Mats Edén, Morin Khuur in Mongolia under Batzorig Vaanchig, and throat singing in Tuva under Igor Koshkendey.
Joined by guitarist Simon Nyberg (Sweden) for their Australian tour,
Jaron enjoys long stumbles in the woods, early-morning bedtimes, and unrehearsed fire juggling."
