Franklin Station

Steve Worley- Guitar / Ralph Clay - Bass / Bobby Pillow -Banjo / Jackie Cooper - Mandolin

Franklin Station is a group of musical friends that has spent most of their life picking and singing. Although they have played in different configurations over the years they were not all together as a bluegrass band. With this band there is a strong background of bluegrass and true country music with just a touch of southern rock flavor mixed in. Their shows will surely have a great bluegrass style mix for every bluegrass and music fan.
