Freddie White has long been synonymous with music of the highest quality. He has been part of the fabric of the live music scene in Ireland since the 1970s and his albums continue to sell well, amongst his loyal and newfound fan base. Born in Cobh, Co. Cork, into a musical family, by age 17 he was playing professionally. At 19, he moved to London, were he busked in subways, and developed his unique voice and guitar style. His earliest recordings, which were re-mastered and re-released in 2004, are still hugely popular among his loyal fan base.

He will be in Triskel for one night only on Friday 10 May.

“The sparse and haunting Live on Tour is still among the greatest Irish albums of all time. Do You Do swings and struts just as profoundly. Imagine those two cuts of vinyl made a decade ago, they still stand as perfection” (The Irish Times)

In 1974, he was a founding member of Scullion, together with Philip King and Sonny Condell. Later he formed The Fake, regarded as one of the seminal Irish bands of the late 1970s. Next came The Freddie White Band formed in 1978, which toured with Eric Clapton that year.
