Update April 2017

(As a special treat, an old friend of mine, Cheryl Czapp, sent me a clip of a television show I had a part in some 30-odd years ago. It's called "Tippin at Matt Kane's". Here is the Youtube link. It's in 3 parts, but only the first two have video to accompany the audio. I hope you get a kick out of it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5ikOn1kGMKO.) Hello Everyone – A premature remembrance of Good Friday and a very Happy and peaceful Easter to all of you. I trust that if you’re reading this, you survived the Paddy’s Day festivities and celebrations in your neck of the world. If you didn’t survive Paddy’s Day and are reading this, let me know your change of address. I made it through the observance rituals at Kevin Barry’s in Savannah along with Carroll Brown, Harry O’Donoghue, Colleen Settle and Michael Corbett. Everyone is pretty much un-scathed…maybe some minor injuries and sub-dermal and dermal hematomas that shouldn’t scar or at least should scab over by next year. The place did quite a business. We saw lots of old friends, made some new ones and mended some fences – which is as it’s supposed to go. Right? On top of everything though, I can’t heap enough praise on the wait staff, bartenders, kitchen crew, maintenance, management and of course the nonpareil security. They made out jobs as musicians just that much easier. Two days after the Ides of April, I’ll be back at Kevin Barry’s for the week. The 17th – the 22nd, (Monday – Saturday) I’ll start at 8:00. On the 23rd (Sunday), I’ll go on after the session. The session, which is an open one and is hosted by the Savannah Ceilidh Band, runs from about 6:30-8:30. I follow on through the end of the night. I guess that wraps it up. Drop a line or an e-mail or a Facebook commo if you feel up to it.

Got a new book coming out momentarily: “Frank Tells Tales: Recollections, Explanations and Narratives from Years Spent Inflicting His Presence on Innocent, Unsuspecting Audiences”. It’s a re-working of my stories published in “Clean Cabbage…” I’ve added a lot of narrative, explanations and filling out that I hope will make the stories more understandable, informative and entertaining. I’ll have copies at the gigs but you can also order them through the mail for $11.50 ($10 for the book and $1.50 for the mailing costs). So long for now, God bless you as well as our armed forces, police, fire and first responders. Frank 790 E. Spiller Street Wytheville, Virginia 24382
