The Salt Spring Folk Club is excited to present the enigmatic troubadour Fred Eaglesmith on Monday, Jan. 20 at Fulford Hall.
With 42 years on the road and 22 studio albums, Eaglesmith’s claim to fame is his undeniable gift for writing songs. His relentless touring in Canada, the U.S. and Europe has amassed a cult following of “Fred Heads” and his songs have been covered by some of the biggest names in music and earned him a Juno.
As press material explains, although Eaglesmith is a veteran of the music industry, he never operates within anyone’s boundaries and he sets a standard for independent artists everywhere.
Performing solo and with his various bands he is now carrying on with his musical wife Tif Ginn. Ginn is described as 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 Eaglesmith along with her multiple instrument additions to the show will have audience members in awe.
The concert starts at 7 p.m. with doors at 6:15. Catering is by Three Blind Mice. Advance tickets are at Salt Spring Books.
