Frank Baker

co-planter of the whirled peas

The 12-string guitarist has been playing over 40 years and claims that every gig the Peas have performed is his favorite. “I love making music with good friends,” he said while clutching his big Gibson, “a big man needs to play a big instrument.”He took up the guitar while a student at Kent State University. Both he and his guitar have been down many roads: as director of drama for Lyndon State College in Vermont; radio personality and program director for a Philly station; acting in community theatre troupes in the area; founder and president emeritus of Teleduction, and you’ll find him on the BIG SCREEN in The Perfect Storm. But his love is music. “The Kingston Trio, Seegar, Bob Gibson and even Patti Page influenced me early on in my musical journey. I really, really consider my favorite, Bob Gibson,” Franks explains, “he’s a great instrumentalist as well as vocalist.He and his wife, Sharon, have 3 children and 6 grandchildren. When not writing and performing music including his own songs: The Bottom Has Fallen Out of Everything But You or Run to the Roundhouse, Nellie, the Brakeman Can’t Corner You There, Frank pitches horseshoes, fishes saltwater sportfish and he’s pretty deft at pole dancing.
