Fred Eaglesmith & Tif Ginn
PRESENTED BY AVALON HOUSE CONCERTS
February 2, 2020 from 1PM to 3PM
Yep, that is Super Bowl Sunday, but the game won't start until 3:30 at the earliest, and all the best commercials can be seen anytime on YouTube.
If you consider yourself a Fred Head, this is a show you don't want to miss, and you probably know everything in the next 2 paragraphs. If you haven't seen Fred and Tif live, it's about time to see what you've been missing. And an intimate show like this is a rarity.
Fred Eaglesmith can talk to you about almost anything. Chances are, he's had that car, tractor, job, relationship, idea, and hat. But throughout his life and experiences there is always one thing that has remained the same: his undeniable gift for writing a song. Aspiring songwriters and performers of all ages call and write Fred with questions on how to have a career like his. And what can he say? Start writing songs when you're 10 years old. Grow up with poverty, agriculture, religion, and eight siblings. Run away from home. Hop freight trains. Start a business. Lose a business. Struggle to get any gig. Drive to Nashville with no money and pockets full of songs. Get a record deal. Lose a record deal. Win a Juno Award. Break down on the side of the road every day for days on end. Become a cult hero and amass a following of self-proclaimed Fred Heads. Tour relentlessly. Become everyone's favorite. Becomes nobody's favorite. Follow your gut. Smarten up. Dont care what anybody thinks. Be fair. Be loyal no matter what. Keep going. Soften up. Give people a break. Expect nothing. Give everything. Keep going. Allow yourself to be happy. Find out who you are and deal with that. Don't stay in fancy hotels. Write good songs.
After all these years touring the United States, Canada, and Europe, having his songs covered by some of the biggest names in music, and appearing on The Late Show with David Letterman the enigmatic, countrified, Rock n Roll troubadour, Fred Eaglesmith, is carrying on with musical wife Tif Ginn. Fred is a veteran of the music industry and at the same time is about as far away from actually participating in today's music industry as one could be. Never operating within anyone's boundaries, he continues to set the standard for independent artists everywhere. Tif Ginn is a gutsy, amazing singer and a transcendent songwriter who has spent most of her life touring and playing music. Her impressive, sultry vocals and glorious harmonies with Fred, along with her multiple instrument additions to the show will have you in awe. This girl has it all, including Fred.
Please bring: Appetizers, desserts, and/or drinks to be shared with other guests before the show and at the break.
Doors open at 12PM Noon. Show at 1PM. This is an indoor seated event.
All proceeds go to the artists.
All Sales Final. No Refunds.
