Chris Freeman - Thesilger (Great 1976 Australian Private Folk LP)


Christopher James "Chris" Freeman (c. 1950–1992) was an Australian multi-instrumentalist and teacher who specialised in 6-string and 12-string guitar for classical and flamenco music.
At the age of 17 he severed the fingertip of his left hand middle finger in a car accident. It was replaced by a silver cap, which gave him the nickname "Silver Finger".
He released three solo albums, Thesilger (1976), Shifting Sands... Night & Day (1978) and Best of Chris Freeman (1991).
He also issued four albums with keyboardist John Shaw, Chris Freeman and John Shaw (1981), Synthesized Orchestration (1983), Synthesized Orchestration Vol. 2 (1984) and The Best of Chris Freeman and John Shaw (1990).
Chris Freeman died in 1992 after an asthma attack, aged 41 or 42.
Australian musicologist Ian McFarlane described him as a "gifted multi-instrumentalist" who "garnered considerable praise for his work, but he never embraced the notion of mainstream acceptance".
