Fret and Fiddle

Award-winning musicians Fret and Fiddle present a musical journey of
the legendary violinist Stephane Grappelli’s life.

Sit back and relax to the beautiful ballads of ‘Stardust’ and ‘My Funny Valentine’. Tap your toes to Cole Porter’s ‘Anything Goes’ and be transported back to those Charleston days and the razzle-dazzle of that swinging fiddle!

Fret and Fiddle have come along way since forming in 2001 as a duo making their mark as a tribute to Stephane Grappelli and Django Reinhardt.

Since those early days playing at small folk and blues clubs and experimenting with their repertoire they have enjoyed over a decade of success as a trio, winning awards such as Stafford Jazz Society’s “Band of the Year” and producing over four albums of material.

The co-founders of the group, professional violinist Sally Minchin and guitarist Andy Bole, embarked on their project “Grappelli Swing” in 2014 to wide critical acclaim playing as a four-piece line up on their” UK tour.

Come and hear old hits like ‘I Can’t Give you Anything but Love’ and prepare to be dazzled by Andy’s greek bouzouki playing! This versatile and entertaining group even throw in a few refreshingly individual songs by the likes of Tom Waits and Leonard Cohen, making certain that there is something in every show to delight everyone in the audience.

Fret and Fiddle have just released their new album ‘J’Attendrai’ which has been making waves locally and nationally and their track ‘Pennies from Heaven’ has already been played as part of BBC Introducing on local BBC radio.
