About Frank Fairfield
California-based fiddle, guitar, and banjo player, and ardent 78 collector Frank Fairfield has made his living as a musician, often found playing on the streets of Los Angeles. Handpicked by Fleet Foxes to open their U.S. tour last year, Frank released a 7” on Tompkins Square and recorded his self-titled debut album. His music has won over tough critics and purists like Grammy winning producer Chris King (Charley Patton, People Take Warning box set), Phil Alexander (Mojo) and Greil Marcus, to name a few. Jerron “Blind Boy” Paxton will be joining Frank for his set. He is a young musician from South Central area of Los Angeles who plays banjo (five and six string) guitar, harmonica and several other instruments in the pre-war American style.
