ALICE HOWE: Come enjoy this rising star.
With her soulful, impeccably tuned voice and crafted poetry, Boston singer-songwriter Alice Howe is "at once of the moment and timeless, personal and universal" (Mark Walton, Americana UK). Her pure, distilled sound reflects a musical sensibility rooted in '60s folk and '70s Southern California songwriters. Credit is due to Alice's parents for raising her on a steady diet of Taj Mahal, Joni Mitchell, Muddy Waters, Jackson Browne, and Joan Baez. As a performer, she is sure-footed and captivating, familiar to her audience from the very first song.
2017 was the year that Alice began making big waves in the folk world. Her EP You've Been Away So Long debuted on the April Folk-DJ charts with a #1 song - "Homeland Blues" - and #11 album. "Homeland Blues" went on to become the #7 song for all of 2017. Alice has been touring consistently in support of the EP, playing at such venerable Northeast venues as Club Passim, Caffe Lena, and Caramoor Center for Music and the Arts. All in the last year, she was a Falcon Ridge Folk Festival Emerging Artist, an Official Showcase Artist at FAR-West, and a Semi-Formal Showcase Artist at NERFA. Alice is currently hard at work on her first full-length album at Aum Studio Productions in Bakersfield, California, produced by legendary bass player turned award-winning singer-songwriter Freebo (Bonnie Raitt 10 years, CSN, Maria Muldaur, Ringo Starr, Dr. John, and many others).
These presentations are private gatherings by invitation. This is not a business. Attendees are expected to make a donation of $15-$20, 100% of which goes to the performer. The host makes no money.
This will be a great evening of original music and classics!
Barbara and I have seen Freebo & Alice at a small House Concert. Don't miss these two!!
FREEBO:Folk-Rock Blues Icon
From world renowned bassist (Bonnie Raitt 10 years, CSN, John Mayall, Maria Muldaur, Ringo Starr, Neil Young, Dr. John, Loudon Wainwright) to award winning singer/songwriter, Freebo's music touches your heart with songs of life, love, dogs, and the human condition. He is well regarded for his high level of musicality coupled with his thoughtful and powerful use of words in song lyrics as well as in prose and narrative. He has also appeared on the classic TV shows Saturday Night Live, Midnight Special, The Tonight Show, and in concert with the legendary Spinal Tap. Here’s what critics are saying about Freebo:
"Freebo is more than one of LA's best players, he's also a richly gifted and distinctive songwriter, as expressive in his writing as on a bass" (Paul Zollo, Songwriters On Songwriting)
"Freebo's intimate and go-down-easy personable vocals tie in light-hearted fare, social commentary and spiritual quest with love-sweet-love, and make it sound seamless." (Janet Goodman, Music News Nashville)
"Standing Ovation is an astounding song which encompasses a profound view of life, destined to become a classic." (Russ Paris, Folkworks.org)
"Listening to Freebo is like riding on a cumulus cloud of peaceful awareness, a cosmic blend of folk/country/rock/soul ear-pleasing genre-defying music." (Walt Falconer, Cool Album Of The Day)
"'Freebo sounds as if he's not really singing to you; he's talking to you. One of the best albums of the year." (John Shelton Ivany, jsitop21.com)Type your paragraph here.
