Frontier Folk Nebraska
They headlined the first festival as the rain was pouring down. Crammed onto a well built yet very small stage, FFN played with a passion and fury a lot of us had never seen before. We’d all ʺheardʺ rock and roll, but never knew what it actually meant until that night.
Year two, their sound echoed out over the Kentucky horizon while small scraps of dark clouds rolled out over head. The crowd was silenced. The air was thick and humid and held the plain truth of music above us as if there was nothing else going on in the world as important as that moment.
They are a rock and roll band. Plain and simple. They make no excuses for that, nor should they. In a time where it might not be fashionable to be a rock and roll band, we have Frontier Folk Nebraska to remind us just how much we miss it.
