Searching for Frank

About This Project

Blues artists Michael Baytop and Rick Franklin are a Washington, D.C. based duo who share an appreciation for Memphis legends Frank Stokes and Dan Sane and the acoustic guitar duet tradition. This CD was conceived as a tribute to Stokes and Sane, and as a sample of the types of guitar based music they and other street singers would have played in the late 1920’s and early 1930’s. It also showcases Baytop and Franklin’s own musical voices and the particular circumstances in which they developed their blues perspectives. (Read Full Album Notes on CD Baby)
