Triple Fret

Hometown: Durham, NC

Mike Babyak’s Triple Fret is an electric ensemble from The Triangle region in North Carolina, featuring Mike Babyak on lap steel and electric guitars, along with a rotating lineup of great instrumentalists including E. Scott Warren on bass, Mike Rosado on percussion and special guests like Scott Sawyer, Will McFarlane, Steve Kimock, Danny Gotham, Leo Kishore and Hank Smith.

Triple Fret’s repertoire includes original material that stretches over a wide range of genres, including Afropop, Latin, jazz, blues, and rock. They also tear into classic rock pieces by Frank Zappa, Jimi Hendrix, the Allman Brothers Band and many more. Lap steel guitar is a central feature of the act, and live performances emphasize improvisation.

Triple Fret has been performing in the Triangle area for over fifteen years, appearing regularly at local clubs and regional festivals, and providing support for national touring acts.
