One of my favorite festivals in the great state of Florida, a) because they have an awsome line-up each year, b) the people are great, and c) because I had the good fortune to design the festival artwork 3 years in a row (2000-02).

The festival has been on hiatus since FEMA comandeered the fest's home Easterlin Park to help folks ravaged by those horrible hurricanes several years back.

Freebo started his career together with Bonnie Raitt, then spent a decade as a top rated session man/touring musician, working with artists ranging from John Mayall, Crosby Stills & Nash, and Ringo. His distictive bass and backing vocals stand out on the classic "Midnight at The Oasis" by Maria Muldaur...His tuba performances with Dr. John and the Spinal Tap are legendary! In the late '90's Freebo broke loose with the first of three solo CDs: 1999's "The End Of The Beginning," 2002's "Dog People" (songs about the human/canine connection), and his latest in 2006, the awesome "Before The Separation".

Last year Freebo won the prestigious South Florida Folk Festival Songwriting Competition.
