Fred Eaglesmith

Country-folk singer/songwriter Fred J. Eaglesmith was one of nine children born to a farming family in rural southern Ontario. 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 in tandem with bassist Ralph Schipper and mandolinist Willie P. Bennett. In 1991, he released the double live collection There Ain't No Easy Road, followed two years later by Things Is Changin'. Another live set, Paradise Motel, appeared in 1994, and in 1995 Eaglesmith returned with Drive-In Movie. 1999 saw the release of 50-Odd Dollars. The double-disc Ralph's Last Show was issued in spring 2001, followed by Falling Stars and Broken Hearts in 2002, Dusty in 2004, and Milly's Cafe in 2006. ~ Jason Ankeny

We picked up a six pac went to the bay and that is when I found out she was a hooker. Lleft her with a smile and the six pac, oh well. Bk

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

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...

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.

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.
