GEORGE FRAKES: Not just content with performing and recording his patented tapestry of sweeping guitar and soaring vocals to satisfy the hunger of the awaiting masses at venues such as the Royal Albert Hall and Kentish Town Forum, Frakes is also a true historian. Understanding the cultural and social importance of blues and old time music, Frakes has spent thousands of hours researching these matters. Reading can only get you so far, as Frakes knows full well; in pursuit of understanding he has walked the freight tracks of the T&A railroad, travelled the country without a penny to his name, spent nights without a place to lay his head, played until the dawn to fund the food that provides, loved, lost and regained, walked the unpaved highway and turned his back with a heavy heart. George Frakes is the real deal, and he’s riding your way.
