Danny Frank & the Smoky Gold

After two decades of playing around campfires, Danny Frank has taken the stage. Over the past two years, the singer-songwriter formed an all-star band featuring Harrison Olk of Tin Can Gin on banjo, Ian Kvale of Black River Revue on bass, and Duluth Superior Symphony Orchestra Concert Master Erin Aldridge on fiddle. “She pulls in a lot of classical tricks, and mixes that with traditional bluegrass stuff,” Danny said of his classical counterpart. “It’s just such a solid crew of really seasoned musicians.” Frank’s debut album, Smoky Gold, produced by Adam Greuel from Horseshoes and Hand Grenades, came out right after Homegrown 2021.
