Acclaimed Canadian singer, songwriter and rock ‘n’ roll bandleader Fred Eaglesmith is a genuine iconoclast, old-time showman, and true original with nineteen albums to his name. He has doggedly gone his own way as an independent artist, becoming almost a cult figure as a result. His thousands of devoted fans across North America flock to his live shows and have built festivals to showcase his concerts. He has been honored with a Juno Award, song placement in films by Martin Scorsese, a #1 hit on the bluegrass charts; he has wowed David Letterman, and found his songs included in the curriculum at two colleges.
Often found in the company of his large traveling family of sidemen, kids and roadies, Fred will be performing an intimate duo concert with long time accompanist Tif Ginn. This Texas native is a gutsy, amazing singer and a transcendent songwriter. Sharing Eaglesmith’s flair for showmanship and drama, her songs ranging from jazzy country to folk to Americana and pop, and honest portrayals of trailer parks and pills, confinement and release. She and Fred bring out the best in each other’s art and this will be a night to remember.
