Description:

Front Country is an acclaimed acoustic band from California, fronted by gifted singer and songwriter Melody Walker and her huge bluesy voice. The quintet is based on bluegrass instrumentation but draws on a broad palette of country, blues, Americana and jazz influences. Front Country has become renowned as a storming live act on the US festival scene over the last few years, after winning the band competition at Colorado’s Rockygrass festival in the early days of the band. They refer to their style as “roots-pop” which goes some way to describing their wide-ranging but majestic and accessible sound. Now based in Nashville, this entertaining five-piece is packed with instrumental and songwriting talent, including Jacob Groopman (guitar/vocals), Jeremy Darrow (double bass), Adam “Roscoe” Roszkiewicz (mandolin/vocals) and Leif Karlstrom (fiddle).

Support from Shetland’s own acclaimed Americana specialists Kansa, who last year released their excellent debut album The Rowan Tree.

“Sharply played ensemble Americana, with a powerhouse vocalist who puts the blues in bluegrass” – Rolling Stone.
