New Music CIrcle presents: Fred Frith at Joe’s Cafe
Renowned and exploratory British guitarist / composer Fred Frith is an icon of avant-garde music, employing a rare musical intelligence, accompanied by an omnipresent sense of humor.
Born in 1949 and raised in Yorkshire, England, Frith has been actively involved in a broad spectrum of musical initiatives since the late 1960s, starting with the iconic rock collective Henry Cow, and has long since been internationally recognized as an exceptional electric guitarist, improviser, songwriter and composer for film, dance and theater.
Frith has performed and recorded with a veritable who’s who of modern music including Lotte Anker, Derek Bailey, Anthony Braxton, Alvin Curran, Brian Eno, Evelyn Glennie, Ikue Mori, The Residents, Christian Wolff, Robert Wyatt, and John Zorn, among many others. His original musical works have been documented on over 400 recordings
