Wild Eye Pub is honored to host this delightful duo of veteran musicians, performing their inspired, original music on our creeksoide stage. 

Get your tickets early!

Alice Howe and Freebo are a blend in contrasts:  a rising voice in Americana music and a venerable rock, folk, and blues icon. Each a compelling performer in their own right, they both lead and support each other in their well-crafted songs with flawless harmonies and tasteful instrumentation. They have worked as creative collaborators in the studio and on stage since 2017. Freebo weaves his unique fretless bass stylings into Alice's superb vocals for a presentation with undeniable chemistry.

To hear Alice Howe sing is to be enraptured by the natural, unaffected beauty of her voice, with honest, authentic, emotionally resonant singing in the tradition of the roots music that shaped her. On Circumstance, her second and latest album, the Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter guitarist displays her vocal prowess and introspective writing, bringing her heart and musical tastes on a deep, personal journey across an Americana soundscape dotted with blues, folk, country, soul and rock. Recorded at the legendary Fame Studios in Muscle Shoals, Alabama, where Etta James and Wilson Pickett once shook the walls, 11 stirring tracks dive into the vagaries of the heart and her own personal journey. As an old soul inside a 30-something millennial, Alice puts her stamp on Americana’s venerable strands with 10 standout originals evoking the classic singer-songwriters and seminal music that once filled airwaves, roadhouses and juke joints.

Freebo is best known for his decade of touring and recording with Bonnie Raitt. He has distinguished himself as one of the great bassists of our time, recording with CSN, Maria Muldaur, John Mayall, Ringo Starr, Dr. John, and Neil Young, and appearing on Saturday Night Live, The Midnight Special, The Muppet Show, and in concert with the legendary Spinal Tap. Not willing to simply rest on those achievements, Freebo delved more deeply into his creativity and has become a highly regarded singer/songwriter, now working on his 6th full-length solo CD. A multi-award winner and finalist in numerous songwriting contests, Freebo’s music reflects his compassionate concern for the world and people around him, and his lyrics and open stage banter have helped him connect with listeners worldwide. A live musical experience with Freebo is astute, insightful, clever, and truly melodic.
