Center for the Arts: Front Country
April 5 @ 7:30 pm - 11:00 pm$25
Roots pop Front Country has forged a sound hell bent on merging the musical past of bluegrass with the future. Melding traditional acoustic instruments with modern pop, their peculiar aesthetic produces songs that are intricate, intense and infectious. Their unique blend rises from a bassist equally versed in newgrass and jazz; a mandolinist with a degree in composition and classical guitar; a guitarist trained in rock and world music; a violinist that can seamlessly hop between honky tonk and electropop; and a multi-instrumental female lead singer-songwriter with grit and soul. It’s not a sound based on current trends, but an innovative perspective looking to find a new audience. Their progressive-leaning acoustic music won them first prize at both Rocky Grass and Telluride Bluegrass Festivals before being invited to tour legendary anchors such as Old Settlers and MerleFest. Front Country is Melody Walker (vocals, guitar, percussion), Adam Roszkiewicz (mandolin, banjo, vocals), Jacob Groopman (guitar, rezo guitar, mandolin), Jeremy Darrow (bass), and Leif Karlstrom (five-string violin).
