On this week’s edition of Art of the Song, we visit with Freebo, a bass and tuba player, guitarist, singer, songwriter, and producer noted primarily for his work with Bonnie Raitt. He is also a respected session musician who has recorded and performed with Ringo Starr, John Mayall, John Hall, Aaron Neville, Dr. John, Willy DeVille, Crosby, Stills & Nash, Maria Muldaur, Kate & Anna McGarrigle, and many others.

His long collaboration with Raitt began when he attracted Raitt’s attention as a member of Philadelphia’s Edison Electric Band in the 1960s. Freebo was soon in great demand for studio work and touring.

In recent years, he has recorded four solo albums: The End Of The Beginning (1999), Dog People (2002), Before The Separation (2006), and Something to Believe (2011).
