Front Country

Joining us a third time, Front Country started as a group of friends playing bluegrass in San Francisco’s Mission District, and morphed into a touring powerhouse of song and sound, transcending their humble stringband roots. Front Country’s dynamic instrumental textures take flight with grace and gravitas while rooted in the relentlessly soulful vocals of lead singer-songwriter Melody Walker. Along with mandolinist Adam Roszkiewicz, guitarist Jacob Groopman, violinist Leif Karlstrom and bassist Jeremy Darrow, this quintet has been called “passionately intoxicating” and “orchestral” and Melody’s bluesy vocals have been described as “rafter-shaking”. Front Country won the prestigious Telluride Bluegrass Festival band competition in 2013.
