Freight Hoppers

Overcoming weather and other wounds, it's another fun folk festival


“You folks up here sure are hardy,”
Frank Lee said today (Saturday, Aug.11).

He was onstage at the Great Lakes Folk
Festival in East Lansing, Mich., where his Freight Hoppers perform
again Sunday. He knows the turf; this North Carolina group makes
frequent trips to Michigan.

“I almost wrecked our bus once,
finding out if brakes work on snow,” Lee said.
