Solo, or with his band, Mountain Fever, Frank performs folk and bluegrass music everywhere from huge events on the Mall in Washington DC, to cafes in small towns. His first album project, The Illustrated Nonsense Rag, now resides in the American Folklife Collection of the Smithsonian Institute. Frank has been the entertaining subject of many newspaper articles, radio interviews, and television appearances. The Banjo Man album project was inspired by the banjo show he does every Sunday morning at the Takoma Park Farmers'' Market in Takoma Park, Maryland. These performances are attended by local children who now know Frank as "The Banjo Man". One parent suggested a child-oriented recording, and Frank enthusiastically embraced the idea. The result is a collection of fourteen of the most popular songs from the Farmer''s Market show, accompanied by members of the Mountain Fever Band.
The Banjo Man project is mostly traditional songs for kids and banjo lovers, including only one original, the Banjo Man song. Lately Frank has been writing more original songs for general audiences as well as kids, including ''Keep Me Up On Myspace When I''m Gone''.
