The Moss Arts Center at Virginia Tech presents Dori Freeman in concert on Friday, March 10, 2017.

Inspiration and style often come from our sense of place—especially places we call home.

Dori Freeman is a twenty-four-year-old singer and songwriter from the southwestern hills of Virginia. Dori comes from a family rooted in art and tradition. Her grandfather is an artist and guitar player, and her father, a multi-instrumentalist and music instructor. While her style subscribes to no one genre, the influence of her Appalachian upbringing lies at the core of her music - heard especially in the lulling mountain drawl of her voice. She sings without affect and with striking clarity, delivering each song carefully and earnestly.

Dori's style was shaped by American Roots music: Bluegrass, Rhythm and Blues, and Old Country. Her early introduction to musicians like Doc Watson, The Louvin Brothers, and Peggy Lee have heavily influenced her modern yet timeless sound. Dori learned how to play the guitar at fifteen and began writing her own material a few years later, citing Rufus Wainwright and his haunting melodies and achingly honest lyrics as the spark that inspired her to pen her first song. Her songs often center on heartache and pining; unrequited and sometimes unconventional love common muses for her melodies and lyrics.

Dori currently lives in Galax, VA.


The center presents Freeman in conjunction with the 40th Annual Appalachian Studies Conference, Extreme Appalachia, being held at Virginia Tech from March 9-12, 2017.

Tickets are available at the Moss Arts Center Box Office in person Monday-Friday from 10 am - 6 pm and by phone at 540-231-5300.
