Alison Lee Freeman

Alison Lee Freeman is a 21st century chantey singer with an extraordinary voice easily heard over gale force winds. In performance the vivacious balladeer sings a cappella or accompanies herself on guitar. She mixes traditional songs of the sea with newly renovated folk songs. Join in on the chorus for a journey back in time and enjoy history the old fashioned way through entertaining songs and stories

Freeman performs at a variety of diverse venues such as museums, festivals, schools, and assisted living facilities. She also sings and tours with the Rachmaninoff Choir.

Recordings are available through CDBaby.com and online music services such as Apple iTunes. Her song, “Alison’s Saab Story”, which has been played on NPR’s Car Talk, chronicles her history with cars and was engineered and co-produced by Grammy winning mixing engineer, Ducky Carlisle.

She holds a MusB in voice performance from Boston University and teaches voice through private lessons and workshops.
