The Rogue Folk Club presents Fred Eaglesmith

Mel Lehan Hall at St. James - 3214 West 10th Avenue16 Jan '20 @ 7:00 PM - 10:00 PM

    Fred Eaglesmith can talk to you about almost anything. Chances are, he's had that car, tractor, job, relationship, idea, and hat. But throughout his life and experiences there's always one thing that's remained the same: his undeniable gift for writing a song. Aspiring songwriters and performers of all ages call and write Fred with questions on how to have a career like his and what can he say?

    Start writing songs when you're 10 years old. Grow up with poverty, agriculture and religion and 8 siblings. Run away from home. Hop freight trains. Start a business. Lose a business. Struggle to get any gig. Drive to Nashville with no money & pockets full of songs. Get a record deal. Lose a record deal. Win a Juno. Break down on the side of the road every day for days on end. Become a cult hero and amass a following of self-proclaimed "Fred Heads." Tour relentlessly. Become everyone's favourite. Becomes nobody's favorite. Follow your gut. Smarten up. Don't care what anybody thinks. Be fair. Be loyal no matter what. Keep going. Soften up. Give people a break. Expect nothing. Give everything. Keep going. Allow yourself to be happy. Find out who you are & deal with that. Don't stay in fancy hotels. Write good songs.

    After all these years touring USA, Canada and Europe – having his songs covered by some of the biggest names in music, and appearing on “The Late Show” with David Letterman – the enigmatic, countrified, Rock n' Roll troubadour: Fred Eaglesmith, is carrying on with musical wife Tif Ginn.

    Tif Ginn is 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 Fred, along with her multiple instrument additions to the show will have you in awe. She plays accordion, guitar, melodica, mandolin, ukulele, stand-up bass and percussion. This gal has it all - including Fred!

    Eaglesmith is 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. Never operating within anyone’s boundaries, he continues to set the standard for independent artists everywhere.
