When Canadian singer-songwriter Fred Eaglesmith was a teenager, he hopped on a freight train, left his home in rural Ontario and started writing songs and performing music. More than 30 years and 20 albums later, Eaglesmith has never looked back. A favorite on the alt-country/Americana scene, Eaglesmith has such a loyal following, his fans call themselves “Fredheads,” a tip of the cowboy hat to Deadheads, and his wanderlust has been a constant; many of the 57-year-old’s songs feature trains, cars, and traveling tales, along with a cast of like-minded wandering souls.
