In Search of the Holy "Fral"

I have to leave for Hopedale as in "right now", but wanted to do a quick post.

The last time I saw Fralinger String Band in concert was 1988 and every time I try to make plans to see them again, something always happens. This year, I went by the date on and discovered that the caledar was several years out of date. But I ended up staying with a dear, dear friend I haven't seen in a long time and we did the Philly night life instead. Terrific fun!

Check out the link. The Chubby Singing Middle-Aged Crafter Who Attempts Running Occassionally was once a young, thin 18 year-old member of the South Jersey String Band. The camera pans me for about 5 seconds. Look for the girl with the very long hair and the silver saxophone.


  1. That may have been the year I nearly got marched over by Greater Kensington while sprinting up Broad Street, in the attempt to catch up with you guys and get some photographs. :-) Once that drillmaster blew the whistle, they started moving forward, and woe betide anybody who happened to be in the way!

    Did you ever find a current schedule of concerts, so you could know when Fralinger actually is appearing?

  2. Actually, it might have been Greater Overbrook, now that I think about it. Either way, I nearly ended up wearing a collection of golden-slipper-prints on me from head to toe. ;-)
