Cobh native, Freddie White, has been on the Irish music scene for 40 years plus. A founder member of ‘Scullion’, he remains a wonderful interpreter of songs, as well as, being a prolific singer songwriter.

It’s a while since the jazz-influenced performer has been in this neck of the woods, however, thanks to the efforts of Bill Power and the team at St George’s Arts & Heritage Centre, the well-travelled Freddie, appeared in concert last Saturday night.

Audience members, some taking up the invitation to B.Y.O. – bring your own refreshments – settled in for over 2 hours of brilliant entertainment. Last weekend’s concert is part of a nationwide tour, that’s been very well supported.
