Frank Schaap is a folk/blues musician from New York City. He toured the USA for 15 years as a founding member of the Metropolitan Blues All-Stars. He then moved to New Orleans and worked with the Royal Street Rounders for 4 years as a busker. In 2000, Schaap wrote the Grammy nominated song "Deep Mine Blues" for Larry Cordle and Lonesome Standard Time.
