Frederick John Elgersma (born July 9, 1957), known by the stage name Fred Eaglesmith, is a Canadian alternative country singer-songwriter, one of nine children raised by a farming family in rural Southern Ontario. As a teenager Eaglesmith hopped a freight train out to Western Canada, and began writing songs and performing. He is known for writing songs about machines or vehicles, including songs about trains, tractors, trucks, cars, and engines. Rural life, dogs, guns, drinking and farming/ranching are other common themes. Many of his songs are about failing farms and small businesses. Down and out characters dealing with loss of love or livelihood, and quirky rural folk also populate his songs. His songwriting uses many of the techniques of short story writing, including unreliable narrators, surprise endings, and plot twists.

October 2013 moves us into our fourth year of bringing LIVE, Original music to the Rear Window. There is no question, without the overwhelming support of our music loving friends, patrons and sponsors, it would not be possible to continue this mission. So, thank you very much for being a part of moving the Rear Window Listening Room into its 4th year!!!
Rear Window Patrons are some of the nicest people you will ever meet ... without exception. So, if you have been putting off giving the Rear Window a try, this is the time to mark your calendar. Every show is excellent, so please visit our "Events" page and check out the line up.
The website is a work in progress, so please come back every few days to check for updated event information! Thanks very much for all your support, we look forward to seeing you at the Rear Window!
If you really love music, and find yourself sometimes wishing you had some friends who loved it even half as much as you, then you have come to the right place. The Rear Window audience is comprised, primarily, of music lovers who really enjoy being able to hear the performers play their music without the usual noise that keeps you from being able to hear much of the songs. We present a wide variety of music styles or genres, and artists who write and perform their own music.
Most of the music is considered "Americana" which really means, country, alternate rock, rockabilly, rhythm & blues, bluegrass, jazz, funk, folk, and just about anything else you can imagine. Because music has largely to do with personal taste, you will like some of our shows better than others, but we guarantee that you will always be glad you came.
You can probably imagine the vast number of singer-songwriters and performers who pitch their music to record companies each and every day. Yet, a record company typically has only one or two people who choose the artists they will push to stardom. So, as you can see, it is very likely that record companies pass up some of the best music you will Never Hear. That means some of the Best Music never hits the radio or television, because it doesn't get the very costly promotions that record companies invest in "Their Choices."
At the Rear Window Listening Room, you will hear some of the best music you have ever heard, performed by artists who are extremely talented and have devoted their lives to creating and playing music. We also have some artists who are either on the verge of making it big or have already started down that road and still take time to come by the Rear Window. Susan Gibson has written a single that sold 14 million copies (that's a lot), and Sean Ashby, coming in April, has four multi-platinum records to his credit. Richard Smith, coming June 9th, is hailed as the one of the World's Greatest finger-picking guitarists, ever; and Actor & singer-songwriter Ronny Cox (the guitar player at the beginning of the movie "Deliverance") comes to the Rear Window regularly. So, plan to come to the Rear Window Listening Room and join us for some fabulous music and overall excellent entertainment.
