Reed Foehl returns to the Music on the Square stage on Friday from 6 to 8 p.m. His music is genuine Americana, telling stories of the human condition with lyric and a voice that push the boundaries while paying homage to tradition.

Born into a musical family, Foehl grew up in a small, country town in New England, listening to his parent’s bluegrass band rehearse in the living room every Thursday night for all his childhood. From there Foehl took to the streets at the early age of 11 performing at Boston’s own Fanuel Hall marketplace.

He then became the front man for the band Acoustic Junction which toured for ten years nationwide and eventually signed with Capricorn/Mercury records. In 2001 he began his solo career with the release of “Spark” which put him on the map in the publishing world, garnering placements in both film and television.

His fourth solo album, “Lost in The West,” was released in 2014, which led him to tour with Gregory Alan Isakov, Todd Snider and Anais Mitchell, to name a few. Recently nominated for a Grammy for his song “fly” which was covered by the country legend “Lee Ann Womack.” 2018 is shaping up to be a big year for Foehl as he plans to release his fifth solo record.

Music On The Square is a summer concert series held every Friday through Aug. 31 at Cooper Creek Square in downtown Winter Park. The series is free and open to all ages.
