'Front Country' in Portsmouth
An acoustic band born in the land of tech innovation, Front Country was never going 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 in the East Bay, they learned to play roots music their own way, with the tools they had on hand. In a wood-paneled country dive bar in the shadow of the San Francisco skyline, Front Country forged a sound hell bent on merging the musical past with the future, something they call “roots pop”. With elements of classic rock, country, bluegrass and even electronic pop, Front Country strongly stands at the forefront of a new American roots sound.
