Frank Hamilton In-depth Biography

Multi-instrumentalist, vocalist, and folk} song collector Frank Hamilton} has played a seminal role in the evolution of American folk} music. A co-founder of the Old Town School of Music in Chicago in 1957, Hamilton} taught the future leader of the Byrds}, Roger McGuinn}, to play guitar and banjo.

Seeger} called him "one of the most creative musicians in the country," while Odetta} described him as "a folksinger's folksinger, a master of the art." Studs Terkel} declared that he was "quite possibly the most expert and versatile of folk} instrumentalists." A native of New York City, Hamilton} was drawn to the music of the American south as a youngster.

Calling themselves the Dusty Road Boys}, the three folksingers spent an extended period in the midwest with stops at the Asheville Folk Festival}, the Grand Ole Opry}, the home of A.P. Carter} of the Carter Family}, and the Highlander Folk School. Hamilton} recorded his debut solo album, Sings Folk Songs}, in 1962.
