Support by: + The Estuary Dwellers
Please note: this show was originally scheduled for the 28th but changed at short notice due to circumstances beyond my control. Apologies for any confusion.
Hailing from Fresno, now living in Los Angeles, Handpicked by Fleet Foxes to open their U.S. tour in 2009, Frank Fairfield performs acoustic and authentic popular, American, international folk, "old time" and bluegrass music. His instruments are Fiddle, Banjo, guitar and voice. He's avid collector of old records.
"He plays with a rare integrity, offering up his life in a way that does exactly what folk music must do-- it relates the world as the singer sees it, mixing sadness with sweetness, excitement with low-down and miserable depression. This has nothing to do with genre; hip-hop, jazz and rock all feel this way, too. Like the best of it all, Fairfield's music seems inexorably real and entirely necessary. " - Pitchfork
