A founding member of ‘Scullion’, Freddie later formed ‘The Fake’, regarded as one of the seminal Irish bands of the late 70s, and then came ‘The Freddie White Band’ which toured with Eric Clapton on his Irish Tour.

His first album, ‘Live on Tour’ brought him national attention and the second, ‘Do You Do’, was the biggest selling Mulligan Label album of 1981. Followed by ‘Long Distance Runner’ in 1985, ‘Have A Nice Day ‘1987, ‘Close to You’ 1991, ‘Straight Up’ 1994, ‘My Country’ 1999, ‘Lost and Found’ 2002, ‘Four Days’ in May 2004, and most recently ‘Stormy Lullaby’ in 2008.

Freddie White’s popularity has endured for many years and there is a very good reason why - he delivers!

He can rock your socks off, bring tears to your eyes with a ballad, or croon a jazz standard, all the while giving this apparently diverse material a common thread.
