Top US bluegrass band Front Country play Emsworth’s Tuppenny Barn on Friday, November 20.
Spokesman Loudon Brookfield said: “When ‘Whispering’ Bob Harris played tracks from Front Country’s memorable debut album, Sake of The Sound on BBC Radio 2, he told listeners they were currently the biggest band on the bluegrass scene in America, and he was right.
“Coming out of the California Bay area’s red-hot roots music scene, the band first made serious waves with rarely-accomplished double best-act competition wins at both the Telluride and Rockygrass music festivals – unquestionably the most prestigious get-togethers for the genre in the USA.
“Now, the band makes its UK debut with a three-week tour that is eagerly awaited by many. The schedule will take them all over England and Scotland.
“Although hot in traditional bluegrass circles, the band is renowned for broadening out their approach to make the show have much wider appeal.
“Their fresh attack – to honour the tradition while adding exciting contemporary material too – is what has gained them such a lot of Stateside attention and established the outfit as something different from all the others who have had hard-earned greatness conferred on them.”
