Biographical Notes

A Frank, as he was affectionately called was from Dover, NL, and was known and billed as the One-Man Band From Newfoundland. He was a virtual legend on the Canadian east coast music scene and was well recognized as one of Canada's most uniquely talented and engaging performers. He launched his one-man show in 1975, and became an overnight sensation, simultaneously playing bass pedals with his left foot, chord organ with his right foot, and a harmonica clamped in a holder, all while his hands alternated between a guitar and mandolin strapped in front of him. He frequently pulled the accordion, banjo, and a kazoo into the performance just for good measure.
