Fred Eaglesmith

Country-folk singer/songwriter Fred J. Eaglesmith was one of nine children born to a farming family in rural southern Ontario. While still in his teens, he hopped a freight train to Western Canada and began his life as a performing songwriter. Often employing his difficult upbringing as raw material for his heartland narratives, he issued his self-titled debut LP in 1980. He recorded infrequently throughout the remainder of the decade, releasing only two more albums, The Boy That Just Went Wrong and Indiana Road. However, Eaglesmith gradually became an underground favorite in his native Canada, thanks largely to a relentless touring schedule with his longtime band -- bassist Ralph Schipper and mandolinist Willie P. Bennett. The band was alternately called the Flying Squirrels or the Flathead Noodlers, depending upon the style of music they were playing. Beginning in the early '90s, Eaglesmith's recorded output increased dramatically, and over the next two decades, he would firmly establish himself with more than a dozen albums and countless live performances. In 2000, he formed his own record company, A Major Label, on which he released albums like 2002's Falling Stars and Broken Hearts, 2004's Dusty, and 2006's Milly's Cafe. He also released a pair of Official Bootleg Series collections documenting his live solo sets. Over the years, Eaglesmith's songs have followed the narratives of various down-and-out rural characters and subjects, and he's become known for his often lengthy and comic storytelling on-stage. In the 2010s, his output remained strong and of high quality with acclaimed releases like 2010's Cha Cha Cha, 2011's 6 Volts, and 2013's Tambourine. In early 2017, Eaglesmith delivered his 21st studio album, Standard. ~ Jason Ankeny

I saw him play at roots on the river in rockingham Vermont. The older he gets the better he gets. He's raw and in your face

Way outside and Beyond the Box and he's the best singer/songw r i t e r to come down the pike in many a year! John Prine/Tom Waits, a few more...Seen him a few dozen times beginning with Santa Cruz show in 1999 caught him in Vermont where Mary Gauthier was featured as the warm-up act, in Church, on Sunday morning!(Not Comin' Down) Good as it Gets and then some, eh? Check Fred out behind a mic and rare and riffin' Canadian packing some of the Best Songs, You've never heard and better before ya' die...

Tinderbox is awesome

I wouldn't miss a Fred Eaglesmith show. He's a rough and tumble John Prine: Man enoughto love a train, a motorcyle or and old car and man enough to shed a tear for a lost love, a lost prairie town or a lost way of life.

If you like Fred check out his new CD Tinderbox! You will see religion in a new light. Fred takes on Tom Waits. Greggo

I played street hockey against Fred and his band at a tournament in Vermont. It was a blast, and then we went to his show at the Iron Horse in Northampton, MA. It was truly a weekend to remember. I am a fredhead.

I just saw Fred and his band in the Normal Heights neighborhood of San Diego. I'm not very familiar with his work but MAN! what a show! Pretty funny guy in between songs too.

Fred (and to a lesser, slicker extent, Slaid Cleaves) are what country would be, if country had never gone to Vegas. Fred is the absolutely most genuine, honest music artist I have ever known.
