White has been part of the fabric of the Irish live music scene since the 1970s. He was a founding member of ‘Scullion’, and afterwards formed ‘The Fake’, regarded as one of the seminal irish bands of the late 1970s.

‘The Freddie White Band’ formed in 1978, toured with Eric Clapton.

Freddie’s latest album, ‘Here With You’, was released in April 2012. It introduces Trish Hickey and is a collection of songs from some of their favourite writers.
