Mapping the Planets in Silk and Sound at Newark Gateway

January 30th, 2014

Nicky Jones is my new assistant who went with me, silks loaded in the van, in frightfully cold weather to New Jersey in mid-January 2014. My outer space show, Mapping the Planets in Silk and Sound, was installed at “All That Glitters…” with music by Mark Mercury.
This collaboration came about because of my daughter Sarah Fraser who performed at the opening under the tent-like silk structure. Open through March 20, 2014 at Newark Gateway, NJ.

Folk Music

January 6th, 2010

In the 60′s and 70′s I was a folk singer and traveled the South, mainly in my home state of NC, playing guitar on porches and various venues. My first coffee house was opened when I was in the 10th grade in a church basement in Fayetteville, NC. Singers from NY and DC would stop in to warm up in our little dimly lit den before their night club gigs. At East Carolina University

in Greenville, NC, I organized another coffee house for students and musicians. This Thursday is a reliving of that era on Kiawah.

Lime & the Coconuts Recording on MySpace

September 29th, 2009

Lime (Mary Edna Fraser) and the Coconuts (various talented musicians) reach to the past for swing standards and tunes that make you want to tap your feet. Guitarist and vocalist Roger Bellow plays almost anything with strings other than a puppet. In the circle of superlative pickers he is a cherished music man. On the ukulele is Sandy Hines who sounds like the female lead singer on a scratchy old time record and Noodle with his magician fingers on the frets. Jeff Narkiewicz plays doghouse bass and David Hinson’s vintage drums round out the sound. Adding to the jocularity are the velvet voices of Berita Martin and Anne Goold as well as Keith Namm’s sexy sax and clarinet.
