The April 14th Sunday Salon at River House will introduce Dori Freeman and David Long to the 2013 season.

Dori Freeman, a native of Southwest Virginia has been singing for as long as she can recall and took up quickly with the guitar at fifteen.  Dori’s influences span a varied list of genres including traditional, swing, jazz, and folk.  Perhaps one of her greatest influences is the regional music of the Appalachian Mountains that she grew up listening to.  Dori has two records available:  “Porchlight,” featuring smooth vocals tinted in shades of jazz and swing paired with traditional instrumentation and “Those On the Moon,” a soulful set of songs spanning old-time inspired tunes and her original compositions.

Mandolinist and vocalist David Long was a 2006 nominee for the International Bluegrass Music Association Recorded Event of the Year for his album “Stomp” with Mike Compton, and is considered to be one of the new masters of traditional, bluegrass mandolin playing. He has performed around the world, including two previous tours in Japan as well as Australia, playing at the Port Fairy Folk Festival and National Folk Festival in Canberra (2005). The online journal Mandozine wrote, “Today, a revival of traditional music is in full swing and gritty, soulful mandolin playing is again at the forefront. At the top of the list of new masters is David Long.”


Music begins at 4:00 PM, hors d’oeuvres passed at 5:00, more music and a Chef’s choice 4-course menu at 6:00.
