Please join us for our virtual concert series, Live from The Fold, on our Facebook page. We are pleased to offer our series with our local favorite musicians, some favorites from Michigan and beyond. We are pleased to introduce our
faithful followers and our new friends to a wide range of traditional music and performers.
It will be presented every Thursday from 7:00pm – 8:00pm
On Thursday February 25th we will welcome back to our stage, Frank and Allie Lee! Frank and Allie Lee (Bryson City, NC) are a harmony-powered duo playing so many instruments in so many styles you’ll think you just heard six different bands! Yet their songs, learned from American folk musicians in the early days of the recording industry, remain rooted in the old-time music aesthetic. There’s Frank’s signature clawhammer banjo sound on steel string and nylon string banjos. There are slide guitar and harmonica blues pieces. There’s Maybelle Carter-inspired country guitar. There’s cross-tuned old-time fiddling a la Fiddlin’ John Carson. And Frank & Allie’s voices in harmony tying it all together!Frank and Allie, the core duo of longstanding string band, The Freight Hoppers, have traveled extensively as touring musicians. Frank, a founding member of The Freight Hoppers, has impressed audiences all over the United States, Canada, and northern Europe with his signature clawhammer sound. Allie is a founding member of The Whipstitch Sallies, a folk band from Indiana. Together, the pair is a powerhouse duo with touring experience in Florida, North Carolina, Virginia, Vermont, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Kansas, Iowa, Arkansas, Missouri, and France.In addition to performing, Frank and Allie screenprint music-themed t-shirts, available on their website. They also organize an old-time music retreat in the Great Smoky Mountains twice a year called the Banjo-Fiddle Frolic.
Frank & Allie’s new album Treat A Stranger Right is available at www.frankandallie.com, CD Baby, iTunes, & Spotify.
