Biography

Having joined forces to form an acoustic duet that will quite frankly blow you away, these two guitarists are performing songs from their Little Feat catalogue and more with a decidedly different twist.

They first played together on the album “Dixie Chicken” some twenty-five years ago and since then have played together or individually on numerous recording sessions for Little Feat and countless others including Bonnie Raitt, Taj Mahal, Bob Dylan, Tom Waits, Dionne Farris, and the Wallflowers to name a few.

Paul Barrere joined Little Feat for the band's third album Dixie Chicken, and has been with the band since. During Little Feat's early 80's hiatus, Paul led the group Chicken Legs. Since Little Feat's return with "Let it Roll", Paul has stepped more into the spotlight. Paul's guitar, vocals, and songwriting are now an important part of the Little Feat sound.

In addition to his work with Little Feat, Paul Barrere has also recorded and performed with many other fine musicians including: Chicken Legs, the Blues Busters (featuring Catfish Hodge), Valerie Carter, Chico Hamilton, Bonnie Raitt, Robert Palmer, and Carly Simon.

Paul has a solo album out on Zoo Entertainment called If the Phone Don't Ring . This is a compilation of material from Paul's On My Own Two Feat and Real Lies albums.

Fred Tackett plays guitar, trumpet, and mandolin for Little Feat. Hailing from Arkansas, Fred Tackett worked as a side man on many Little Feat albums before becoming a full member of the band for Let It Roll. Along with his fine guitar work, Fred's mandolin and trumpet have become a featured part of the Little Feat sound. Robert Palmer writes about Fred Tackett's early years in Rock and Roll: An Unruly History.

In addition to his work with the Feat, Fred has a very large discography of work with other artists.

Fred brings multi-faceted talents of guitar, mandolin and trumpet to the table with Mr. Barrere’s guitar and voice in a much more intimate rendering of songs and stories from a well traveled road.
