Frank Frost and Sam Carr
At way-back-in-the-country Delta jukes, concert halls in New York, nightclubs in Europe and Australia-and in most places in between - Frank Frost and Sam Carr have spent 40 years together playing the blues. Whether just the two of them, with Robert Nighthawk (Sam's father), Sonny Boy Williamson II, or their longtime partner, Clarksdale's Big Jack Johnson, Frank and Sam persist in their wild, raucous downhome blues. They first recorded in the early 60s for Sam Phillips' Phillips International Records, and continue to record together, mostly for the Evidence label. Frank's Sonny Boy inspired harp playing and whisky-filtered-through-gravel voice have made him a popular performer wherever he plays. He has seen resurgence in both his recording and performing career over the past couple of years. When the regular drums aren't quite enough, Sam is prone to playing walls, floors, microphone stands, guitarists' backs, anything he can hit. Sam and Frank recently reunited for a recording session with Big Jack for OFF YONDER WALL on Fat Possum Records.
