Fred Eaglesmith www.fredeaglesmith.com
Legendary songwriter Fred Eaglesmith has
one of most fascinating careers in contemporary music. He has released
19 albums, the latest "6 Volts" was captured live in the studio with one
microphone onto a one-track reel to reel recorder. His songs have been
covered by Alan Jackson, Miranda Lambert, Toby Keith, Cowboy Junkies,
Mary Gauthier, Todd Snider, Dar Williams, Chris Knight, and Kasey
Chambers. Throughout the years since his first album in 1980, Eaglesmith
has usefully managed to both transcend and blend such genres and
categories as rock’n’roll, country, folk, singer-songwriter, Americana,
blues and bluegrass to fashion his own distinctive brand of literate,
melodic and rhythmic rocking elecro-acoustic North American music. Along
the way he has gathered a unique set of accomplishments: a Juno Award
for Best Roots & Traditional Album, had his music used in films by
Martin Scorsese and James Caan, wrote a hit #1 on the bluegrass charts
(“Thirty Years of Farming,” recorded by James King), wowing David
Letterman in his U.S. network debut in 2010, and finding his songs
included in the curriculum at two colleges. His followers are so devoted
that he is the host and centerpiece of a number of music festivals in
the U.S. and Canada. He will be joined on this tour by Kori Hepner
(drums), Justine Fischer (upright bass, Matty Simpson (manjo, guitar,
organ), and Mike Zinger (mandolin, banjo).
