OPENING ACT

Evan Frankel was raised in Brooklyn, NY, and showed musical talent at a very early age.   He was auditioning for Broadway parts at age 7, but, as he says, was washed up by 12.

A love of music has always permeated his life, even though he took a vastly different route and became an attorney.   Throughout these years he always played guitar and wrote music.
His album, Ten Thousand Miles, was produced by Pete Kennedy and Caroline Doctorow, and his music has been played all over the world.   This collaboration on March 20, will feature some originals, some covers, and the total enjoyment of playing with such other talented people.
Evan is on the board of the South Florida Folk Club and still has pursuits which incorporate his legal background.

Evan Frankel-New York bred singer-songwriter, former vagabond, attorney, world traveler.
