What To Know
If You Come To a Show

Bill and the Belles & Dori Freeman

Saturday, June 2nd @ 7:00 PM


Bill and the Belles

Bill and the Belles

What began as a project to explore the space created between hillbilly and urban, between vaudeville and down-home, has arrived somewhere entirely new. From sentimental Southern ballads to the popular songs of Tin Pan Alley to regional fiddle breakdowns, a Bill and the Belles show is a celebration of the diversity country music once represented. Hailing from Johnson City, Tennessee, the group continues to further the musical traditions of their region. Lifelong musicians Kris Truelsen, Grace Van’t Hof, Kalia Yeagle, and Karl Zerfas bring to the stage striking three-part harmonies, masterful instrumentation, uplifting humor, high spirits, and all-around revelry.


Dori Freeman

Dori Freeman

A Galax native, Dori Freeman’s family tree includes her father, Scott Freeman, and grandfather, Willard Gayheart, beloved veteran bluegrass musicians. As a singer and songwriter, her music blurs the finer lines of Americana and shines new light on the legacy of traditional music. She brings a modern and honest perspective—both lyrically and vocally—to the genre.
