WOJB welcomes FRED EAGLESMITH with special guest Tif Ginn Aug 6 at The Potter's Shed
WOJB is thrilled to welcome FRED EAGLESMITH, performing a solo show with special guest Tif Ginn on Thursday, August 6th at The Potter's Shed in Shell Lake WI. Show time is 7:30 P.M.
Tickets are $15 in advance HERE or by calling (715) 634-2100. Admission is $20 at the door.
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. While blazing his own often colourful path he has avoided most of the traps and pitfalls of his peers – his career reads like a manual on how to succeed in music today without trying to fit into the traditional business models.
Eaglesmith’s songwriting has also earned him multiple International awards and his songs have been covered by some of the biggest names in Nashville including Toby Keith, Alan Jackson and Miranda Lambert. His music has been featured in films and television scores including those of True Blood and Grimm. Fred and his band have also been the featured musical guest on Late Show With David Letterman. And in 201 has also seen the launch of a highly successful musical theatre production Dear Johnny Deere inspired by and based on Fred’s songs.
With such great attention to giving the best in his performances both live and recorded, critics have taken notice. The Bend Bulletin praised Fred as “a singer-songwriter with a loyal fan base: a raconteur known for his funny stories and sometimes funny, sometimes poignant songs…a figure to whom ‘entertainer,’ ‘humorous’ and ‘original’ can be applied in equal measure.” And the Los Angeles Times, in a live review, noted: “Eaglesmith snarled out lyrics that underscore his overriding attitude that music and musicians ought to be cherished in the here-and-now and valued for the quality of their art, not the size of their bank accounts or TV ratings.”
Despite all of his accomplishments you are more likely to see him playing to 150 of his fans in a small town community hall rather than at a large capacity theatre or concert venue. Likewise it is more probable to hear about his next show via a hand-stencilled roadside sign and to find Fred sleeping in his waste-vegetable oil powered bus in a Walmart parking lot or local campground over a 5-star hotel.
