"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."
