Fred Frith
Fred Frith has been active in a broad range of musical contexts for more than fifty years. A pioneering electric guitarist, he has remained close to his roots in rock and folk music through ground-breaking bands like Henry Cow, Art Bears, Massacre, Skeleton Crew, the FF Guitar Quartet, Cosa Brava and, most recently, the Fred Frith Trio. As an improviser he has performed with just about everybody just about everywhere. His compositions have been performed by Ensemble Modern, Hieronymus Firebrain, Arditti Quartet, Robert Wyatt, Concerto Köln, the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, Sleepytime Gorilla Museum, and many others. He is also an award-winning composer for dance and film. His hundreds of published recordings are available on Tzadik, Intakt, ReR, and his own label Fred Records, among many others.
