Doors 7:30 - $15 RELIC 8pm, then Front Country (*exact times subject to change) Front Country is a band on the precipice of a metamorphosis. As multi-instrumentalists, songwriters and composers, the instrumentation and setting have always been secondary to the musical vision that comes through no matter what stage they take. For a band with a genre in their name, genre has always been elusive for Front Country, as they refuse to pick sides or be constrained by any expectations outside their own singular aesthetic. From their beginnings in the SF Bay Area to their new hometown of Nashville, TN, Melody Walker, Adam Roszkiewicz and Jacob Groopman have been on a journey to discover a sound. While making their third album - their first in Music City - they feel closer than ever to what fans have heard in them all along. SLC Weekly called it "Rugged Americana and Purposeful Pop", and that seems as close as anything to describe the Front Country sound. To them, their namesake is about pushing the envelope, but never losing sight of their roots. Relic - Kentucky Bluegrass at its finest. Louisville, Ky, is a city that bears a rich history of honoring the roots of traditional music while stretching boundaries and embracing progress. Relic is part of a revival of this platform, blending rich vocal harmonies with colorful instrumentation. The core of the group includes twin brothers Aaron Bibelhauser (on banjo) and Adam Bibelhauser (on bass), guitarist Chuck Sharp, mandolinist Dave Howard and Tavis Conley on drums. Aaron, the primary songwriter of the group has written songs recorded by award winning bluegrass artists including Del McCoury Band, Balsam Range, Michael Cleveland & Flamekeeper, Dale Ann Bradley, and The Wooks. He also took first place in the Chris Austin Songwriting Contest at Merlefest and earned a nomination for the IBMA's prestigious Song Of The Year Award.
