Adam James Frei
Punk rock Bluegrass!!! Sounds crazy doesn’t it. If you are interested in finger picking and learning how to teach yourself not only how to play, but to write your own original music than look no further. Adam teaches that you do not have to follow the rules. If you want to express yourself through music there are no rules! Adam began playing 5-string banjo at the young age of 8 and has since taught himself guitar, mandolin, dobro, lap steel, pedal steel, and harmonica. His goal as a teacher is to show how it can be done in your own way. His styles range from folk, singer/songwriter acoustic, blues and bluegrass to punk rock, slide guitar, classic rock and metal. He formed the local folk/bluegrass/punk band The Derelict Franchise who can be seen playing all over Bucks County. There music is played on WXPN and they were recently featured in a newspaper article in The Morning Call. Adam also owns a home recording studio where he has done recording mixing and mastering for several local bands and singer/songwriters.
