Alice Howe & Freebo

The partnered charity for this concert is Southern Poverty Law Center
Alice Howe, Best Female Artist at the 2023 International Acoustic Music Awards, teams up with legendary rock bassist Freebo with unique chemistry.
To hear Alice Howe sing is to be enraptured by the natural, unaffected beauty of her voice, "a marvelous instrument, strong and effortlessly musical, yet also capable of the sort of nuance that adds layers of meaning" (The Patriot Ledger). The Los Angeles-based, Boston-bred singer-songwriter-guitarist was named Best Female Artist at the 2023 International Acoustic Music Awards. Her second and latest album, Circumstance was produced by her creative partner Freebo, the legendary rock bassist best known for his decade of touring and recording with Bonnie Raitt and recorded at iconic FAME Studios in Muscle Shoals, Alabama. On the album, Alice displays her vocal prowess and introspective writing in abundance, mining both her heart and her musical tastes for a deep, personal journey across an Americana soundscape dotted with blues, folk, country, soul and rock.

Freebo is the Folk-Rock-Blues icon who first came to national prominence as Bonnie Raitt's bass player for 10 years beginning in 1971. For over 30 years, he played bass on classic recordings and toured with some of the great artists of our time including John Mayall & The Bluesbreakers, CSN, Maria Muldaur, Ringo Starr, Michelle Shocked, Neil Young, Loudon Wainwright III, Dr. John, and many others. He has also appeared on Saturday Night Live, Midnight Special, Muppets Tonight, and in concert with the legendary Spinal Tap. It was his yearning for more creative expression, however, that drove Freebo to begin a process of deep inner discovery, and this has led to his successful transition as a singer/songwriter. Freebo's music and message touches your heart with songs of life, love, the human condition, and even dogs!
