FREEBO, MAXWELL, & HOWE are three singer-songwriters who, out of their shared love of harmony singing, have joined together for several performances in the Midwest and East Coast. Freebo is an award-winning singer-songwriter who is best known as a world-renowned bassist (Bonnie Raitt 10 years, CSN, Ringo Starr, Maria Muldaur, Dr. John, and many others). 2016 New Folk Finalist Kirsten Maxwell is known for her “clear soprano [that] rings out in a way that would make Judy Collins and Joan Baez approve” (John Platt, WFUV). With her soulful, impeccably tuned voice, Alice Howe is “up there with the very best of Mary Chapin Carpenter, Gretchen Peters and Dar Williams” (Folking.com). Her song “Homeland Blues” debuted as #1 on the April 2017 Folk-DJ chart and the EP, “You’ve Been Away So Long,” came in as the #7 album of the year. FREEBO, MAXWELL, & HOWE promise a memorable evening of music bringing together a folk-rock-blues legend and two young artists becoming well known in the national folk scene.
