Rootinanny Presents: FRANK LEE

At the Door: 
Tuesday, January 8, 2013 - 8:00pm

Banjoist Frank Lee worked on a several recording projects and continued to sharpen his skills as an interpreter of old time tunes. Traveling both solo and with several fiddlers he continued to tour and to teach banjo. In 2007, with Bass’s health back and Lee’s desire to record and tour as a band again returning, they formed the new Freight Hopper lineup with well known local Bryson City, North Carolina musicians, and returned to both playing for the Smoky Mountain Railroad and delighting audiences at concerts and festivals.

Frank Lee’s remake of a Fiddlin’ John Carson song, “Taxes on the Farmer Feed Them All” is going to become an anthem for many young bands. Written in the 1920’s this tune about the plight of small farmers may be even more meaningful today than it was when it was written.
