Home safe after a summer marathon!

Fred took off just after his 73rd birthday on a marathon of a tour period that finally finished Sunday when he flew home from some rescheduled fun with Mister PC at the Jazz in Fort Ecluse series. Many thanks for the warm welcome to Mister PC and family, Adriano Bassanini, and the beautiful staff and fans of the Fort located on the French side of the border with Switzerland.

The week before found Fred touring the scenic Pacific Northwest with the youngsters of the band Object Heavy and special guests including Rashaan Ahmad, former Jill Scott trumpeter Farnell Newton and saxophonist Christopher Boa. Many thanks to the whole crew, including our friends at Humboldt Green, the Hummingbird Healing Center and Northcoast Horticulture Supply.

Enjoy the photos below.

Up next, fans in Toronto, Canada, can catch Fred for free with Abraham Inc at the Ashkenaz Festival on Sept. 3. Then on Sept. 14, he'll be a special guest with the James Brown Band at the Charleston (SC) Music Hall. Watch for possible added dates in October, then see him Oct. 30 in Greensboro, NC, with the Healing Blues Project.
