A regular column from South Holland Centre in Spalding.
South Holland Centre has an established reputation for presenting top quality live music from North America. Working with a number of different national and international promoters, we work hard to bring some of the best and most entertaining bands on the American music scene over to Spalding and we are looking forward to another cracking gig on Sunday, November 22.
Front Country is a dynamic five-piece from the red-hot American roots music scene. Originating from the California Bay area, they have been blowing the socks off American audiences from coast to coast.
When Bob Harris played tracks from Front Country’s debut album on BBC Radio 2, he told listeners they were “currently the biggest band on the bluegrass scene in America.” He was right, the band recently made serious waves with “best act” competition wins at both the Telluride and Rockygrass music festivals – probably the most prestigious get-togethers for bluegrass music in the USA.
Revel in fabulous instrumental textures across mandolin, guitar, fiddle and bass with wonderful trio harmonies accompanying soulful lead vocals from Melody Walker.
Front Country are playing just eight dates in England and we are delighted South Holland Centre is one of them.
Meanwhile, this Friday, fans of Scottish and Irish country music also have a concert to relish when well-known singer Isla Grant performs at the centre, a return visit after a few years’ break. Isla has built up a loyal fan base over her many years in the business and is dropping into Spalding and Hunstanton after a big tour of country music venues in New Zealand and Australia. Isla shares her easy listening country tunes here this Friday, November 13.
