WHO ARE BD. & B. FRANK?
The pioneers and originators of "Gluebrass Music” (registered trademark), and at it's finest!! So far none have done it better! National resonator guitars, metal fingerpicks and slide, Americana Roots style leaning towards blues, country, with slight flavors of bluegrass. Foot tappin’ boogie, fiddle playing with old time harmonies, sad songs turned happy! Heartbreak with a smile... Recording and performing since 1975 and still alive. To happy for the blues and too sad for bluegrass - but we do it ALL anyhow and with style!
WIDE RANGE OF GENRES
Whether you are looking for “Glubrassical”, classical style instrumentals, fitting for wine bars, coffee shops or other intimate listening settings. Boogie blues to dance and tap your feet to, country flavor for crying in your beer, or sweetly meditative droning originals to mellow out to, WE DO IT ALL!!
Open tuned slide guitars, mandolins, violins, viola, harmonium.
