Early Show: Dom Fricot
A little over two years ago Vancouver artist Dominique Fricot got rid of his apartment and most of his earthly possessions to follow his project Folk Road Show back to Europe to start a new chapter. After several tours across Europe with the group while releasing his last solo album Deserts last year and setting up a new home in Berlin, Germany, Fricot is back in town for one fantastic evening at his favourite Vancouver haunt; Guilt and Co. On Monday January 6th come sink deep into the rich baritone of the artist who brought you Peak 102.7 and CBC radio mainstays such as “Haunted by Love” and “I miss the 80s”.
