An Extra Helping of the Blue Plate Special – Dori Freeman “Go on Lovin'”

Dori Freeman is a 24 year-old singer and songwriter from Galax, Virginia. She comes from a family rooted in art and tradition, and the influence of her Appalachian upbringing lies at the core of her music, heard especially in the lulling mountain drawl of her voice. American Roots music- including Bluegrass, Rhythm and Blues, and Old Country – and her early introduction to musicians like Doc Watson, The Louvin Brothers, and Peggy Lee have heavily influenced her modern, yet timeless sound.

Dori, with her father Scott on mandolin, showed an appreciative Blue Plate audience her Old Country influence with “Go On Lovin’, a selection from her recent self-titled release. Learn more about Dori and her music at
