Frank Lee and Allie Burbrink @ Pisgah Brewing Co. 5-24-2017
A passion for traditional songs and tunes from the rural South has fueled Frank’s love of performing for the past 25 years. As a founding member of The Freight Hoppers, he has shared this passion with audiences all over the United States and Canada as well as much of northern Europe. He presents a range of Old-Time music that spans from raw Blues from the Mississippi Delta to the hillbilly music recorded in the South in the 1920s.
Allie Burbrink grew up a farm girl in the vast cornfields of southern Indiana. With her mom playing We Sing Fun & Folk cassettes and her dad blaring Nitty Gritty Dirt Band records, it was no surprise at age 14 that she picked up her mom’s old guitar to lead songs and entertain kids at church and camp. In high school and college, she loved playing and singing anywhere from churches to dorm rooms to community events as a distraction from studies.
