Acclaimed singer, songwriter and bandleader Fred Eaglesmith is a genuine iconoclast and true original. Throughout his career Eaglesmith has gathered a unique set of accomplishments: he’s won a Juno Award for Best Roots & Traditional Album; had his music used in films by Martin Scorsese, James Caan and Toby Keith; wrote a hit #1 on the bluegrass charts; and even wowed David Letterman in his U.S. network debut in 2010.

These days Eaglesmith is in motion most of the year from show to show in a school bus and RV that have been converted to run on both gas and used cooking oil they get from restaurants and diners along the way. The troupe pulls into campgrounds, RV parks, truckstops and WalMart parking lots to spend the night rather than in hotels, and cooks up their own feasts in the morning for breakfast. “Times are hard and things are tough for people, and we shouldn’t be riding in busses that look like bachelor apartments,” he states. As a result, ”It makes me sound like the truth when I’m up there singing because it is the truth.”

It’s all part and parcel of his mission of delivering a memorable and moving entertainment experience for the masses with his band, the Traveling Steam Show.
