Front Country with special guest Dori Freeeman at The Blue RIdge Music Center
The Blue Ridge Music Center presents a night of contemporary acoustic folk music featuring Front Country with special guest Dori Freeman.

FRONT COUNTRY
Front Country is a band on the precipice of a metamorphosis. As multi-instrumentalists, songwriters and composers, the instrumentation and setting have always been secondary to the musical vision that comes through no matter what stage they take. For a band with a genre in their name, genre has always been elusive for Front Country, as they refuse to pick sides or be constrained by any expectations outside their own singular aesthetic. From their beginnings in the SF Bay Area to their new hometown of Nashville, TN, Melody Walker, Adam Roszkiewicz and Jacob Groopman have been on a journey to discover a sound. While making their third album - their first in Music City - they feel closer than ever to what fans have heard in them all along. SLC Weekly called it Rugged Americana and Purposeful Pop, and that seems as close as anything to describe the Front Country sound. To them, their namesake is about pushing the envelope, but never losing sight of their roots. 

DORI FREEMAN
"Every Single Star," Dori Freeman's third album is out now. Like her first two albums, the eponymous "Dori Freeman" and "Letters Never Read," it was produced by Teddy Thompson and contains 10 new, original songs. 
Freeman is from the Appalachian town of Galax, Virginia where she grew up in a musical family. Her father, Scott Freeman, and grandfather, Willard Gayheart, both play music and their family owns the Front Porch Gallery and Frame Shop which is part of The Crooked Road, Virginia's heritage music trail. In late 2014, she sent a Facebook message to Teddy Thompson who liked her music so much he decided to produce her album. Thompson says that it took him "maybe 10 to 12 seconds to realize she's great" and he was struck by her "straight-to-the-heart delivery." The album was funded through Kickstarter and released by Free Dirt Records on February 5, 2016.

Rolling Stone Country called the album "a strong contender for Americana debut of the year" and Jon Pareles, writing in The New York Times, said "the purity of Dori Freeman's voice and the directness of her songwriting reflect not only her Appalachian hometown  Galax, Va.  but also a determined classicism, a rejection of the ways modern country punches itself up for radio and arenas." NPR's Ann Powers said the "debut album shows great range and incredible emotional nuance." NPR also said "it's startling to hear such a fully formed singing and songwriting voice come out of nowhere."Rolling Stone recently included Freeman on their list of "10 New Country Artists You Need To Know: February 2016."
