Calling all Fredheads! Eaglesmith comes to the BAG!
FRED EAGLESMITH with Tif Ginn
A veteran of the music industry and at the same time is about as far away from actually participating in today’s music industry as one could be. Eaglesmith is known for writing songs about machines or vehicles, rural life, dogs, guns, drinking, farming and ranching, down and out characters and quirky rural folks. His songwriting and story telling includes unreliable narrators, surprise endings, and plot twists.
Fred comes by his exceptional musicality and lyrical command naturally and honestly. Through dedication to his craft and delivery, he has built his audience ever since he left the family farm at the age of fifteen to become an itinerant troubadour. His life story, in fact, could be the subject of one of his songs. Fred has a deft touch for finding the literary significance within the lives of seemingly common people, rendering their tales, thoughts and feelings into songs with profound humanity and sensitivity. All twenty of his albums have consistently evoked critical raves, and he’s been compared to a broad blue-ribbon list of musical icons. His fellow songwriters (Toby Keith, Alan Jackson, Miranda Lambert) regularly record his songs and sing his praises. Fred has forged a distinctive legacy with his songs, recordings, and live performances. And he has done so as a fiercely independent and original artist through the sheer power of the music he creates. On stage Fred is a sharp raconteur between songs with tales and observations as keen and compelling as his songs
Tif Ginn is a gutsy, amazing singer and a transcendent songwriter who has spent most of her adult life touring North America playing music professionally. Ginn toured first as half of the Fabulous Ginn Sisters, releasing 3 critically acclaimed CDs then as part of the Fred Eaglesmith Traveling Show playing over a thousand shows at some of the best rooms and festivals in North America.
