Hannah Frank and Sami Lin

Hannah Frank is a Midwestern songwriter whose work runs the gamut of her experience: rural country blues, intricate finger-picking and the raw simplicity of cowboy chords give a basis of folk honesty.This blends into jazz, rock and electrifying energy. Top it off with wordplay, wit and characters which seem to step out of songs as if out of a novel. Generally seen with her band Hannah Frank Group, this special solo set is a surprisingly clear medley of her archives and latest cuts from over twenty years of songwriting.
