Fiddler Trent Freeman at The Bridge

Saturday, Nov. 14, with his band, Speaker Face

Fiddler Trent Freeman will be returning to his Comox Valley roots on Saturday, Nov. 14,to perform with his band, Speaker Face, at the Bridge Lounge in Courtenay.

This new band is a progression from his folk roots, and combines the sounds of his fiddle with electronic beats and manipulations.  The experimental sounds of Speaker Face have quickly gained attention and critical acclaim, winning two categories at the 2015 Vancouver Island Music Awards.

As the music of Speaker Face spread around the world this past year to bloggers in Germany, Sweden and the States, the reviews were glowing and the underground electronic scene was abuzz with both the music and the visual experience of Speaker Face.

Toronto based-cellist Eric Wright is the other half of Speaker Face, and, on stage, he works his magic pushing buttons, twisting knobs and sliding faders. Freeman and Wright are no strangers to working together, having also performed side by side with the award-winning folk string quartet The Fretless.  The two wrote their first Speaker Face song together while on tour in Germany with the quartet.

This will be Freeman’s second time performing at The Bridge, the last being in 2012 when he released his solo CD Rock Paper Scissors, which won the 2012 Solo Instrumental Album of the Year at the Canadian Folk Music Awards.

So, Saturday, Nov.14, slide on into The Bridge Lounge right by the 5th Street bridge, in Courtenay, and take in this stellar performance.  Show starts at 8 p.m. and $10 tickets are available at the door.  For more information call Craig 250-339-4249.
