Big Frank performs a repertoire that he describes as "Americana Folk and comedy"

More like a back porch get together with friends than a concert, well-known southern performer "Big Frank" Waddell returns to the ARTworks stage, along with some songwriting pals. Raised in the upstate and now a Lowcountry resident, "Big Frank" has played the guitar and written songs for over 40 years. He performs a repetoire that he describes as "Americana Folk and comedy".

Joining Frank onstage will be Tim Styles and David Owens, both from the Charleston area. Tim appeared on the ARTworks stage in January as a brief opening act for another songwriters concert. That appearance was so well received that he's back as a featured performer. Tim's music crosses country, folk and rock genres and showcases his dynamic guitar style and accomplished vocals. The third member of the group, David Owens, is perhaps best known as a co-writer of the "Official, Unofficial Theme Song" for the "Dirty Jobs" TV show. However, David also has a 30 year music career, playing at festivals and venues from Key West to Port Townsend, WA.
