Front Country

Founders Brewing Company is pleased to present

Front Country (Harmony-rich, Rock-leaning Progressive Bluegrass from San Francisco, CA)

Don’t ask Front Country what kind of music they play. Just listen.

What started as a group of friends playing bluegrass in San Francisco’s Mission District has 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”. Seldom traditional, always original, Front Country’s new album Sake of the Sound is out now.
