Eric McFadden Trio
Eric McFadden may just be one of the hardest working performers in the business. Fresh off a European tour with Eric Burdon and the New Animals, McFadden returns to the states and hits the ground running. He will finish out the spring on the road with the Eric McFadden Trio in support of their new album, Joy of Suffering.

The Eric McFadden Trio features McFadden on guitar and vocals and James Whiton on the acoustic bass along side drummer Jeff Cohen a long-time friend and musical compatriot - this dynamic line-up is the latest incarnation for one of music's most prolific personalities. In addition to being in several successful bands on the west coast, McFadden has independently produced several solo albums which are regarded as underground masterpieces by fans and critics alike.

McFadden's raspy baritone and impressive guitar chops have made him a perennial favorite among his peers. Throughout his long career, he has shared the stage with such luminaries as Bo Diddley, Keb Mo', Living Colour, Les Claypool, Carla Bozulich, Widespread Panic, Stockholm Syndrome, the Reverend Horton Heat, and Clash front man Joe Strummer, amongst many others. George Clinton was so impressed with McFadden that he recruited him as a touring member of the P-Funk All Stars, and his guitar work can be heard on their latest album.

"In James Whiton, McFadden has found his ideal musical foil. A virtuoso of acoustic upright double bass, Whiton slaps, bows, maneuvers, and manipulates his instrument with orchestral precision and street corner desperation, reflecting the sinister world of desert derelicts and carnival cons who have so long proliferated in McFadden's songs."
-Silke Tudor, SF Weekly

It is rare to find such an important musician in such an intimate setting. Be sure to catch the Eric McFadden Trio as they traverse the west coast and the Rocky Mountains this spring

Some of these dates are wrong. Eric McFadden is playing Fred's Texas Cafe in Fort Worth tonight and tomorrow (5/1-5/2). Tickets are $10 and the show starts at 9pm. Fred's is an outdoor venue, so if it rains, the show will be moved to the Wreck Room in Fort Worth. I wish I would've noticed this earlier than today, EMT is a powerhouse of a band! I've seen them 6 times, and everytime they just get better!!!
