RON FRANKLiN: Now One of 46 NEXT BiG THINGS!
Memphis by way of Arkansas' Ron Franklin is another late addition to DBF. Franklin's sound inhabits the the creme of america's musical history borrowing sounds from Buddy Holly, Chuck B., Jimmie Rodgers, the boys from Memphis and the hills beyond and that boy from the North Country. And like that boy, Franklin has absorbed the old sounds of the old masters and reworked them into service of his own new sounds. A singer/songwriter of the first degree who plays live armed only with harp and a telecaster and The Deep Blues Festival is delighted to have him. You will be too.
Ron Franklin appears at The Deep Blues Festival FRiday July 18th
