Jeremy Darrow to Front Country

Jeremy DarrowFront Country has recently brought Jeremy Darrow on board as the band’s new bassist. He takes the spot vacated by Zach Sharpe who left as the band transitioned to a full-time touring group.

Darrow received his musical training at the College of the Arts in Philadelphia. Bluegrass fans know him from his earlier work with Detour and Dixie Bee-Liners. He currently resides in Nashville.

Front Country shared this statement as they receive him as a new member.

“We’d like to welcome Jeremy Darrow as the new bassist in Front Country! Jeremy joined us on our two national tours this year and we could not be more excited to welcome him into the group as a full time member. He is an amazing bass player, coffee snob, foodie, father of three amazing little girls and one of the nicest guys you’ll ever meet. Please join us in welcoming Jeremy to the Front Country family!”

Jeremy joins Jacob Groopman on guitar, Melody Walker on vocals, Adam Roszkiewicz on mandolin, and Leif Karlstrom on fiddle.

Front Country have also recently signed with Crossover Touring who represent a good many other bluegrass acts, like Sierra Hull, Del McCoury, Della Mae, Hot Rize, and The Gibson Brothers. Their upcoming fall tour will take them through the Northwest, then Southeast for IBMA’s World Of Bluegrass where they are an invited showcase act, and then a Bluegrass Underground TV taping before returning home to California for some shows out there.

Keep up with their dates online.
