Tradewinds Folk Events presents Fred Smith
Saturday 18 November, 2017 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm$25
Over the last 15 years Fred Smith has emerged as one of Australia’s most interesting songwriters. He has spent the last 15 years all over the joint: working on peace keeping missions in Afghanistan and the South Pacific, touring in America and travelling the Australian festival circuit.
Fred Smith launches Great – a rollicking musical hayride through American history, politics and pathologies. This new double album sees Fred Smith return from the ‘Dust of Uruzgan’ to revisit his fascination for things American.
Great combines songs of high mirth alongside some beautiful ballads, highlighting his deep appreciation of Americana musical formats and his gift for telling stories about, well, people! These are stories worth telling.
“…Smith has a love–hate relationship with America, which he has neatly coupled to a wry and profound understanding of that complex society”. Bruce Elder, SMH
