Why travel with Grateful Fred?
We do it because we love the music.
After years performing music, (now well over 50 years), both professionally and semi-professionally, Colin Maddocks set up “Grateful Fred’s Americana, Acoustic and Roots Nights” almost ten years ago to bring leading US acoustic, bluegrass, singer-songwriter and independent artists to the Merseyside area. Since then we have added the “Grateful Fred House Concert Series”.
To date, we have promoted and produced over 175 shows featuring some of the leading Americana artists currently touring.
Over those years we have also accommodated, at our home, many of the artists who have performed at Grateful Fred’s, many of whom have suggested that we should create some music tours of the leading US music cities and legendary music locations.
As Colin and his wife, Barbara, have also been travel agents for over 40 years, it seemed the logical thing to do and so we are now offering a series of escorted music tours working with specialist music travel operator Travelling Time who will be operating the tours.
Travelling Time offer 100% financial protection being ATOL licence holders and members of the Travel Trust Association.
TOL T-7516, TTA Q1893.
Colin will be escorting some of the tours himself, where detailed, and other tours will be accompanied by an experienced and very knowledgable tour manager and local guides.
