Frank Thomas

Florida musician to be honored at North Florida Folk Festival

By Angela Biggs |

If there is anyone who knows Florida’s history and can transform it into a song, Frank Thomas is the man. With over 500 songs under his belt and over 70 years in the music industry, the North Florida Folk Festival is honoring his talent and memorable lyrics on Nov. 12 at the North Florida Agriculture Museum.

Thomas’ inspiration came from his love of Florida and his family. He said his ancestors came to Florida in the late 18th century and he has carried on the tradition and history ever since. As a Florida native, he said he believes that people need to know the history of the land they live on.
