Frank & Allie
Time: 8:00 PM
Frank and Allie Lee (Bryson City, NC) are a harmony-powered old time duo. Their April 2018 release, Roll On, Clouds, showcases their favorite songs from over two years of performing together. These pieces range from blues tradition (Somebody On Your Bond, Roll and Tumble) to bluegrass classics (Standing on a Mountain, Cabin on a Hill), yet remain rooted in the old time aesthetic. Franks nylon string fretless banjo is the dominant instrument, with guitar, slide guitar, and Allies banjo and harmonica adding to the musical texture.
Frank and Allie, 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 band from Indiana that toured in the Midwest, North Carolina, Colorado, and Hawaii. Together, the pair is a powerhouse duo with appearances planned across the country, and they toured France for two weeks in May 2018.
In addition to performing, Frank and Allie screen print music-themed t-shirts, available on their website. They also organize an old time music retreat in the Great Smoky Mountains in the spring called the Banjo-Fiddle Frolic.
