Freddie White

Freddie White

St Mary’s Collegiate Church, Youghal     Saturday 13th July at 8 pm     Tickets:€20.00

In Ireland, where he has won just about every award going, Freddie White is something of a legend. He was a founding member of Scullion, later he formed The Fake, regarded as one of the seminal Irish bands of the late 70¹s. Next came The Freddie White Band, which toured with Eric Clapton on his Irish Tour.

His first album, ‘Live on Tour’, recorded by Nicky Ryan while Freddie toured with Clannad, brought him national attention. His second album, ‘Do You Do’, was the biggest selling Mulligan Label album of 1981.

‘Long Distance Runner’ in 1985, featured original songs such as “Goodbye This Time”, ‘Down Without A Fight’ and the hit single ‘Frozen Heart’ co-written with Johnny Duhan. His fourth album, ‘Close To You’ continued this trend, most of the songs being Freddies own.

In 1994, he released Straight Up, fourteen songs recorded live by Dan Fitzgerald. And now a new all original album, ‘My Country’ recorded in Ireland, was released in 1999. A collection of eleven songs co-written with Ann O¹Sullivan and based on the poetry of Don O¹Sullivan. The album is co-produced with Declan Sinnot, renowned for his work as producer and arranger with Sinead LohanFrances Black and Mary Black, and as lead guitarist with Horslips and Moving Hearts.

Freddie White’s popularity has endured for many years and there is a very good reason why ­ he delivers! He has released seven albums to date to critical acclaim, but it is his live performance that stuns. He can rock your socks off, bring tears to your eyes with a ballad, or croon a jazz standard, all the while giving this apparently diverse material a common thread.

One reviewer called Freddie a “musical chronicler of the Twentieth Century”. Even this is slightly out of step because Freddie includes in his repertoire some folk music that dates back beyond even that. And his brand new album of original material brings him forward to the Twenty First!

Tickets for this concert may be purchased at online at www.themallartscentre.com or telephone 087 9593276.
Admission:  €20.00
