Flagstaff Arts Council is pleased to present Front Country at the Coconino Center for the Arts on Wednesday, October 3, 2018. Doors open at 6:30pm and the concert begins at 7:30pm.
An acoustic band born in the land of tech innovation, Front Country was unlikely to be accepted as an authentic American roots band out of the gate. Cutting their teeth in progressive bluegrass jams in San Francisco’s Mission District and rehearsing across the bay in Oakland, they fashioned their own take on roots music and Indie Folk. Composed of a guitarist, bassist, and violinist, the group has elements of rock, jazz, and country. The female lead-singer completes the group with grit and soul.
Their latest album, Other Love Songs is Front Country’s first record relying on lead singer Melody Walker’s songwriting, first and foremost. The majority of the songs are quite emotional in nature and tend toward relationship themes, sometimes with a twist, hence the title Other Love Songs.
Front Country is band that fundamentally sticks to its roots but also breaks the mold. States, Woody Platt of Steep Canyon Rangers, “Although Front Country has a foundation in traditional music, they are creating their own path and sound with grace, poise, confidence and extreme skill. As you dig in, you might also hear moments that feel like the classic rock of Fleetwood Mac or the Police, as well as the modern country sounds of the Dixie Chicks or Chris Stapleton. As exciting a band on stage as they are in the studio, Front Country stands strong and tall in today’s American roots music scene.”
