Fred EaglesmithThe Fred Eaglesmith Traveling Steam Show comes rolling into Berkeley in a Bluebird bus, with Fred behind the wheel, occasionally under the hood, and always starring in the show. A lifelong musician from the wilds of Southern Ontario, Fred has released 20 albums, including his latest, Tambourine, a celebration of the spirit of rock and roll circa 1966, “the year,” he says, “that gave us Bob Dylan’s Blonde on Blonde and Question Mark and the Mysterians.” Fred’s 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 on True Blood and Grimm, and he and his band have performed on The Late Show With David Letterman.
 
Fred describes what the band does onstage as “a lot more than a concert. I like to pay attention to what’s cutting edge and bring that into the live show.” He and the band went steampunk a few years ago, and they’ve been taking their act on the road for more than 270 days a year. They play originals infused with rock and roll, Motown, folk, country, and Tejano influences, full of richly drawn characters, clever ideas, and great lines. “I ain’t never gonna be a star, but I sure do know how to to please a crowd,” he sings on “Can’t Dance.” If you’re a true Fredhead, you already know – and if you’re not a Fredhead yet, find out what the fuss is all about. These road dogs have a few new tricks up their leather sleeves!

Tif Ginn has a sultry country sound with an edge. She’s played more than a thousand shows, touring with the Fabulous Ginn Sisters and as part of Fred’s troupe. Her self-titled debut album has the feel of last call in a smoky bar when the singer finds her sweet spot and cuts loose with honesty and heart!
