Allie and Frank Lee

Frank and Allie Lee will be performing at 185 King Street on Saturday, Oct. 5, at 8 p.m.

Frank and Allie Lee of Bryson City are a harmony-powered old time duo. Their April 2018 release, "Roll On, Clouds," showcases their favorite songs from over two years of performing together. These pieces range from blues tradition ("Somebody On Your Bond," "Roll and Tumble") to bluegrass classics ("Standing on a Mountain," "Cabin on a Hill"), yet remain rooted in the old time aesthetic.

Frank's nylon string fretless banjo is the dominant instrument, with guitar and slide guitar, and Allie's banjo and harmonica add to the musical texture.

Frank and Allie, the core duo of longstanding string band The Freight Hoppers, have traveled extensively as touring musicians. Frank, a founding member of The Freight Hoppers, has impressed audiences all over the United States, Canada, and northern Europe with his signature clawhammer sound.

Allie is a founding member of The Whipstitch Sallies, a band from Indiana that toured in the Midwest, North Carolina, Colorado and Hawaii.

Together, the pair is a powerhouse duo with appearances planned across the country.
