More About FrankEdmiston

I've played guitar very leisurely for about 25 years now. I've attempted to mix in something that resembles singing for about the last ten years. After moving out here in No Man's Land last year, I decided to get more serious about my music and work on performing for others rather than noodling fragments of songs for my own enjoyment.

I play mostly country/alt-country/Americana/Texas-Red Dirt Country/whateverthehelltheycallcountrythesedays music. I grew up in Lawrence, Kansas a great music town; listening to blues, rock, punk rock and British metal. There always seemed to be country music playing somewhere in the background though. My shows here will probably be brief shows of cover songs initially with more songs and some originals mixed in with time. I'd love to do some playing in the round with some of the musicians on here so if you're up for it, let me know.

Fun Stuff about the Artist

Life on the Street

A busker let me play his guitar for a few minutes because I was the only one who gave him any money. I did my best to make him a few bucks but everyone just ignored us. Probably because he was drunk and he had a friend who was drunk and insulting everyone who walked by.

That's the extent of my playing on the street so far. I really was kind of disappointed that it didn't work out even though they were being jerks.

Embarrassing Moment

I can't really think of any honestly. I used to perform with an improv comedy group so I kind of learned to roll with the punches when performing and enjoy the unexpected.

My Instrument

My favorite instrument was an old Alvarez that I sold a couple of years ago because I went to work in Alaska and had to get rid of things in a hurry before the move. I'd come across it in a pawn shop and didn't realize how lucky I was to have found it until I came back to the lower 48 and tried to replace it. I definitely should have found a place to stash it instead of selling it in hindsight.
