The doggedly independent Canadian singer/songwriter, Fred Eaglesmith will return to Glasgow for a solo performance, his first show in the city for over four years, on February 16.

His fans, known as “Fredheads,” are sure to be out in force to welcome this award-wining, true original, who released his 19th album “6 Volts” in January, 2012.

Bigger name stars such as Toby Keith, Alan Jackson, Dar Williams, The Cowboy Junkies are among those delighted to have recorded covers of his songs over the years.

Lyrics with impact sung in a distinctive gravel voice make Fred rather special or, as the New Yorker Magazine, put it “If you’re missing out on Eaglesmith, though, you’re really missing out.”

AJ Roach was born and raised in the Appalachian Mountains of Virginia, A. J. has travelled over one million miles and performed in more than a dozen countries, playing Glasgow several times.
His songs have drawn comparison to the likes of Townes Van Zandt, Vic Chesnutt and Will – Bonnie “Prince” Billy – Oldham.
His third CD release “Pleistocene” is a lushly orchestrated and beautifully arranged album completely funded by his dedicated and ever-growing fan base.
