More information about Front Country tickets

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).


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


Touring almost continually across North America and
beyond over the last five years, Front Country has
received acclaim for their creativity and impressive live
performances. They released their second album Other
Love Songs to warm reviews in 2017, have been
featured in an NPR special on American public radio
and in 2017 headed up the list of 10 New Country
Artists to Watch in Rolling Stone magazine. Their highly
anticipated third album is slated for a late 2019
release. Melody Walker won the Vocalist of the Year
Momentum Award at the IBMA (International
Bluegrass Music Association) Awards in 2016 and in
summer 2017 the band was invited to Tibet to take part in a cross-cultural river trip and music festival,
where they collaborated with local musicians. The members of Front Country are proud to be progressive
and inclusive in their outlook, and have been active participants in the Bluegrass Pride initiative.
