Teilhard Frost

Many Fredheads will remember Teilhard’s previous appearances at Grateful Fred’s as a member of the brilliant, “Shhesum, Lotus and Son”, who performed on three occasions in the early days of Grateful Fred’s.

Well, we are delighted to welcome back Teilhard in his own right.

For anyone unfamiliar with Teilhard’s music he is an outstanding Canadian multi-instrumentalist and instrument maker who specialises in traditional Appalachian old-time music.

Teilhard’s latest solo recording, “As the Crow Flies”, is a collection of traditional music found in the Appalachian highlands.

The songs have strong ties to the British Isles while the fiddle tunes draw on ancient Scandinavian and northern Scottish modal settings and tunings, conjuring a feeling of mystery and drama.

Supporting Teilhard will be:

Jackson Williams

In May of last year, 2023, “Jackson Williams” performed at Grateful Fred’s for the first time and their set went down a storm. So we are delighted to welcome them back this year.

Jackson Williams are a Country blues/ Folk band from rural North Wales. Consisting of song writing duo Deborah Jackson (Vocals), and Skeet Williams (Guitar, Bouzouki and Vocals), along with Sam Pritchard (Piano and Keyboards)and Andy Cooper (Percussion).

“Some voices you hear, others envelop you, Deborah’s is enveloping. She has this lovely endearing thing; where she doesn’t have any idea how good she actually”.
