I play solo with a banjo, acoustic guitar, accordion, and stories. Sometimes I play with a band.

I have four solo full-lengths, “Major General” (2009), “Luck And Courage” (2010), “Do The Struggle” (2012) and “To Us, The Beautiful!” (2015); as well as the vinyl-only 10″ “St. Sebastian of the Short Stage” (2009), the remix EP “Unlucky & Discouraged” (2010), the “Live Free” (2011) tour EP, the digital EP “Bad Advice,” a variety of 7″s, two dance scores, the choral song cycle “PEOPSSONGS” (2017), and some other miscellany. You can listen to and buy most of it digitally at franznicolay.bandcamp.com or physically at my North American or European webstore.
