Freddie & the Cannonballs

50’s-60’s blues sounds with a modern twist

Freddie “Cannonball” Albertoni is a bassist who has been active for almost twenty years on the Ticino blues/rock scene. After leading the rock-blues band The Flag and working with bluesman Bat Battiston, he decided to take on the role of frontman and start his own band: Freddie & The Cannonballs.

The current line-up with guitar, drums, and a brass section allows the ensemble to create those 1950s inspired sounds but with a modern twist. Freddie & The Cannonballs’ repertoire includes many original songs and the band won the Swiss Blues Challenge in 2021 and went on to represent Switzerland at the international finals in in Memphis. The group now regularly performs at the main blues festivals of Switzerland, including Vallemaggia Magic Blues, Blues to Bop in Lugano, Sierre Blues Festival.
