Conrad Freiburg Saturday, February 19, 2011
We saw Freiburg open for one of our favorite Chicago solo musicians, Gabe Carter, at Uncommon Ground a while back and got pretty blown away by his short, tasty uke pieces. Lots of strumming and ethereal singing, not unlike Lorca-era Tim Buckley. Nothing else really compares--so just the thing we wanted to hear on our airwaves. Freiburg's main gig is as a visual artist and his resum? is nothing to sneeze at. This session features Freiburg reaching into his toolbox for a handful of timeless original numbers. Thoroughly enjoyable.
