Freddie White has long been synonymous with music of the highest quality. He has been part of the fabric of the live music scene in Ireland since the 1970’s and his albums continue to sell well, amongst his loyal and new-found fan base. Born in Cobh, Co. Cork into a musical family, by age 17 he was playing professionally. At 19, he moved to London, were he busked in subways, and developed his unique voice and guitar style. His earliest recordings, which were re-mastered and re-released in 2004, are still hugely popular among his loyal fan base.
“The sparse and haunting ‘Live on Tour’ is still among the greatest Irish albums of all time.
‘Do You Do’ swings and struts just as profoundly. Imagine those two cuts of vinyl made decade ago, they still stand as perfection” (Irish Times)
Entitled “PRODIGAL SONGS”, Freddie’s latest album is a collection of songs about the power of love, the power of music, an observation on the history of Ireland over the last 100 years… and one song about a certain dog, and with a healthy inclusion of some rare covers.
Freddie moved to Sydney, Australia in March 2011 but toured Ireland and the UK regularly.
He now resides in New York City since December 2016 and returns to play his annual Irish tour in July/August where the new songs will feature along with Freddie’s classics from his 40year career as a principal in the orchestra of Irish folk and rock music.
