FRED EAGLESMITH August 23 2016
There are many reasons FRED is legendary.
Eaglesmith, a songwriters songwriter, has a depth that is informed by miles of experience as a true road dog.
And with such great attention to giving the best in his performances both live and recorded, critics have taken notice. The Bend Bulletin praised Fred as a singer-songwriter with a loyal fan base: a raconteur known for his funny stories and sometimes funny, sometimes poignant songsa figure to whom entertainer, humorous and original can be applied in equal measure. And the Los Angeles Times, in a live review, noted: Eaglesmith snarled out lyrics that underscore his overriding attitude that music and musicians ought to be cherished in the here-and-now and valued for the quality of their art, not the size of their bank accounts or TV ratings.
Eaglesmiths songwriting has also earned him multiple International awards and his songs have been covered by some of the biggest names in Nashville including Toby Keith, Alan Jackson and Miranda Lambert. His music has been featured in films and television scores including those of True Blood and Grimm. Fred and his band have also performed as the musical guest on Late Show With David Letterman. This past year has also seen the launch of a highly successful musical theatre production Dear Johnny Deere inspired by and based on Freds songs.
Despite all of these accomplishments you are more likely to see him playing to 150 of his fans in a small town community hall rather than at a large capacity theatre or concert venue. Likewise it is more probable to hear about his next show via a hand-stencilled roadside sign and to find Fred sleeping in his bus in a Walmart parking lot or local campground over a 5-star hotel.
Fred will appear with TIF GINN. Tif Ginn is a gutsy, amazing singer and a transcendent songwriter who has spent most of her adult life touring North America playing music professionally. Ginn was half of the Fabulous Ginn Sisters.
