Fred Smith to launch new album at Troubadour concert

Australian singer-songwriter Fred Smith will launch his new album "Look" on the Central Coast at the Troubadour Folk Club on Saturday, February 24, at the Everglades Club in Dunban Rd, Woy Woy.

Former diplomat Fred Smith has earned himself an enviable reputation as a great singer-songwriter, according to Troubadour president Mr Michael Fine.

He had a "unique perspective on life and an unerring ability to focus in on his subject matter in a sensitive, moving and often quirky manner", Mr Fine said.

"He is loved for his engaging, observant, deeply honest and sometimes quirky songs about people, their amazing personal relationships and life in modern world.

"His sense of humour is sharp, even wicked, and never far from the surface, but he is also a singer who confronts the serious issues and darker sides of life"

Mr Fine said: "Fred's return to the Troubadour is always very special."

The Troubadour would have two other concerts over the next month.

UK folk duo Winter Wilson would hold a mid-week concert at the Anglican Church Hall in Blackwall Rd, Woy Woy, at 6pm on Thursday, March 14.

The next monthly Grand Concert would be held at 7pm on Saturday, March 23, with Irish singer-song writer Eleanor McEvoy and Scottish harpist Chloe Matharu.

Mr Fine said the Troubadour aimed to provide "great live music with fabulous performers, at affordable prices".

All are welcome, but bookings are essential.

Booking and more information is available online at or by phone on 4342 6716.
