TEOA & Freebo & Alice Howe
The Parlor Room (32 Masonic St, Northampton, MA 01060)
With her soulful, impeccably tuned vocals and crafted poetry, singer and songwriter Alice Howe has been marked as one to watch since the release of her 2017 EP You’ve Been Away So Long. The record debuted on the Folk Radio Charts with a #1 Most Played song, “Homeland Blues,” firmly establishing her as a rising voice in American Roots music.
Freebo is a genuine folk, rock and blues icon who, after over 40 years of recording and touring with many of the great artists of our time (Bonnie Raitt 10 years, CSN, Maria Muldaur, John Mayall, Ringo Starr, Dr. John, Neil Young, & many more) is regarded as one of the most gifted singer-songwriters of today. A multi award winner and finalist in numerous songwriting contests, Freebo was also recognized as the 'Best Folk Artist 2007' by the Los Angeles Music Awards. In addition, he has appeared on Saturday Night Live, The Muppet Show, The Midnight Special, and in concert with the legendary Spinal Tap.
TEOA (The End of America) is Brendon Thomas, James Downes & Trevor Leonard: a band of friends who met on the road and found a kindred spirit in one another. The Philadelphia/NYC/New Hampshire based trio credit their name to Kerouac’s On The Road, traveling across the groaning continent in search of inspiration and reaching “the end of America, no more land, and now there was nowhere to go but back.” TEOA’s sound weaves three distinct lead vocals into captivating harmonies over a solid foundation of folk, rock and Americana.
