The  Creaking Tree String Quartet is a band which pushes the boundaries of string band music, offering a fusion of roots, jazz and classical music performed with playfulness and virtuosity.  Since their inception in 2001, they have travelled extensively, recorded 3 albums, and received 2 Juno nominations.   It was a pleasure to host the Creaking Tree String Quartet at my elementary school in May as part of Stellula Music in the Schools week.  I spoke with Ben and John from the band shortly after their school performance.
