Circle of Friends Coffeehouse with Freebo & Kirsten Maxwell

First Universalist Society Meetinghouse, 262 Chestnut St, Franklin, MA 02038

Freebo, Kirsten Maxwell, and Alice 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” ( Her song “Homeland Blues” debuted as #1 on the April 2017 Folk-DJ chart, and she will be releasing her first full-length album, Visions, produced by Freebo, in May 2019. Freebo, Maxwell, and 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.
