KZFR Presents in Chico Front Country

Location: Chico Women's Club
    • 6:30pm Wednesday, October 16, 2019

    Chico's favorite Bluegrass and Americana band is back!

    Front Country's first gig in Chico was at the now infamous Christmas party at Mary's house. Now they'll grace the Chico Women's Club stage! They've turned into a touring band crisscrossing the United States bringing their music to festivals and venues. Melody Walker and Jacob Groopman lead this fine group of musicians. “They somehow strike that perfect blend of soaring vocals, impressive playing and interesting song choices” - Fretboard Journal

    $15 Advance tickets available at Chico Paper Co., Blaze N' J's and the downtown KZFR Office or online at Brown Paper Tickets. Doors 6:30pm, Show 7:30pm.

    "One day in late February, the five members of Front Country were warming up for their record release show at the renowned bluegrass club the Station Inn, in their new home base of Nashville, Tenn. They'd never played most of these songs live before. It wasn't a given that these musicians would wind up in anything remotely resembling a bluegrass band. Singer Melody Walker got into world music and belted out roots-rock. Bassist Jeremy Darrow studied jazz. Leif Karlstrom trained as a classical violinist, and still prefers that title to "fiddle player." Mandolinist Adam Roszkiewicz studied classical guitar at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music." read more
