Freddie 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 new-found fan base.

Born in Cobh, County Cork into a musical family, Freddie was playing professionally by the age of seventeen. At nineteen, Freddie moved to London, where he busked in subways, and developed his unique voice and guitar style.

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 ‘70s. The Freddie White Band formed in 1978 and toured with Eric Clapton that year.

Freddie’s 2014 album, ‘Better Days’, is a collection of ten original songs, all but one written in the past year by Freddie and his wife Trish Hickey.

Freddie’s keen ear for quality songs, undisputed talent for interpretation and exemplary songwriting skills stay with you. A special night is promised when Freddie White appears in concert at The Source Arts Centre in Thurles on Thursday, April 10th at 8pm.

Tickets are priced at €18 (€16 concession).
