Bluegrass Week: Frank Fairfield

Frank Fairfield is an absolute treasure. He is a local Los Angeles multi-instrumentalist who plays old-traditional folk. I've cross sectioned him with Bluegrass week, because his banjo picking is something that any bluegrass connoisseur would enjoy. Having seen Fairfield play several times, in bars, concert halls, and on the street; watching him play is like watching living history. His music is so reminiscent of a style of folk that is so ancient that when heard it seems brand new. This is bindle tying, train hopping music at it's finest which makes Fairfield is a rare gem.
