"I think the bottom of the barrel is where the answers are."
Fred Eaglesmith is Ontario's roots-country original! There are other songwriters who populate their creations with small-time crooks, small-town loners, and working-class heroes. But Fred Eaglesmith's songs stand out for their edge of desperation and their raucous yet bemused humor—and for the incredible energy and on-the-edge quality of his live shows. Circulating on tour from his Ontario farm, Fred harks back to an earlier era of roots music with his raw, driving country soul. Tonight Fred performs in a duo with Tif Ginn of The Ginn Sisters.
