View Full Version : Freight Hoppers
Hey folks, I am looking for some contact information or the latest news concerning members of The Freight Hoppers. From what I can tell the band is no longer together. If I'm wrong please correct me and point me in the right direction. I have been receiving a few e-mails concerning the band and would like to give some answers. Where is Frank Lee? Anyone know anything? Thanks!!
I seem to have answered my own question. After a little more research I found Frank Lee's web site:
Frank Lee Music (http://www.frankleemusic.com/index.html)
I was able to see them live several times, too bad they broke up. David Bass (the fiddler) is great. Last time I saw him was at Galax Fiddlers Convention a couple years ago, he was surprised I knew his name (talk about modest!). I wish them all well. They were a great group!
David and Cary can be found playing around the Asheville NC area fairly often. Cary plays fill-in bass with my band on occasion and David makes it out to the old time jams. Great folks, great players.
How's David's health now? When I last saw him (Summer '03) he was still having a hard time.
He's been doing pretty well all things considered. I have a blast playing with him when I get the chance. He is always in good spirits and full of himself when I see him out. He has gotten very involved in metal working/smithing and is getting the hang of it pretty quickly.
