Music: Fred Eaglesmith performs from his new album, ‘Tamborine’

Award-winning Ontario singer-songwriter Fred Eaglesmith makes a stop at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Feb. 20, at the Green Frog, 1015 N. State St., in support of his latest recording, “Tambourine,” which he calls a “walk through the garden of rock ’n’ roll.”

The music’s roots are firmly dug in the mid-to-late ’60s. The primary essence is 1966, the year that gave us Bob Dylan’s “Blonde on Blonde” and Question Mark & the Mysterians.

The album mixes rock ’n’ roll and R&B with obscure characters, heavy themes and stunning turns of phrase, and continues a rock k’n’ roll odyssey that Eaglesmith commenced in 2010 with his Latin-influenced rock album, “Cha Cha Cha.”
