Della Mae

A Nashville-based, all-female string band, has a completely original style – sensitive yet assertive, intense yet playful, steeped in tradition yet undeniably current. Versatile instrumentalists and vocalists, they draw from a bottomless well of roots influences to create vibrant original music that conveys an expansive musical vision. With timeless lyrical truth-telling and an unmistakably contemporary sensibility, they stand alongside such roots-conscious acts as the Avett Brothers, Punch Brothers, the Lumineers, and Hurray for the Riff Raff.

Della Mae were IBMA’s Emerging Artists of the Year in 2013, GRAMMY Nominees in 2014 for their debut album on Rounder Records, named among Rolling Stone’s “10 bands to watch for in 2015,” and have since traveled with the US State Department to over 18 countries spreading peace and understanding through music.

Their mission as a band is to showcase top female musicians and to improve opportunities for women and girls through advocacy, mentorship, programming, and performance.

Dori Freeman
Dori Freeman first broke out in 2016, with a stunning debut produced by Teddy Thompson and a sparkling voice that seemed to come from out of nowhere. Her songs were brittle, cracked, infused with heartbreak and seeming to speak for women everywhere, channeling Appalachian women in a way that harkened back to Loretta Lynn. NPR spoke of her “bruised sort of romanticism” and Noisey referenced her “heart-wrenching moments.” Freeman had written her first album on the heels of a failed relationship, a suddenly-single mother in a small town. There was a bitter taste in her songwriting that reflected the fiercely independent streak Appalachian women are known for and her own lack of patience for bullshit. Three years later, she’s now happily married (to drummer Nick Falk), and her new album, Every Single Star, to be released September 27, 2019 on Blue Hens Music (her second album on her own label after 2017’s Letters Never Read), features a very different perspective. She’s writing songs now for her new love, and for her daughter, as beholden as ever to the traditions that first inspired her as a young girl growing up in Galax, Virginia, but full of the same incisive eye for the human condition that’s always been her hallmark.

“The purity of Dori Freeman’s voice and the directness of her songwriting reflect not only her Appalachian hometown — Galax, Va. — but also a determined classicism, a rejection of the ways modern country punches itself up for radio and arenas.” – Jon Pareles, The New York Times

Dempsey – At this time we do NOT believe the Dempsey sisters are available to join Della Mae in concert on October 30, 2020.
The Dempsey Sisters, from Smithfield, VA, bring a youthful twist to music both old & new. Their three-part sibling harmony along with their passion for the artistry of music delivers a unique blend.

“Most musicians learn from books, but sometimes they’re mechanical and the music escapes their soul,” he said. “They’ve listened and absorbed the music, so when it comes out of their mouths it’s like a new genre of the song.
-Virginia Mountain Boys and state bluegrass/traditional music legend Bill Jenkins, who is in the  Virginia Music Hall of Fame.

The Suffolk Center for Cultural Arts honors our Veterans, Active Military and First Responders. We appreciate their sacrifice to keep America free and thank them for their service to our Country at LOVE LOCALS –  ‘Red, White & Brews’ on Saturday, November 16, 2019, doors open at 6:30 PM.

LOVE LOCALS – “Red, White & Brews” is a Veterans Day Celebration inviting everyone to come out and remember the service men and women. Enjoy local BBQ, local craft beer tastings and tap your toes and sing-a-long to your favorite local bands featuring  Stolen, Cool Tones, and Just Us.

LOVE LOCAL Food!
The Suffolk Ruritan Club is bringing their world-famous BBQ, with coleslaw & baked beans to Red, White & Brews. As a BONUS, the Suffolk Ruritan Club is offering a FREE BBQ DINNER to Veterans, Active Military & First Responders that purchase a ticket! “The Ruritan’s are all about helping our Veterans and we are honored to provide them with a down-home BBQ dinner.” shared Jimmy Franks, Suffolk Ruritan Club.

LOVE LOCAL Beverages!
LOVE LOCAL will showcase local Craft Beers by MoMac Brewing and Nanesmond Brewing Station before the show and during the two intermissions. Both breweries are offering free tastings and pours for purchase. Local favorite Three Brothers Distillery will create two signature craft cocktails for guests to imbibe: ‘Lover’s Punch’ and ‘Fall Into Love’.

LOVE LOCAL Bands!
Red, White & Brews features performances by three local bands: JUST US, COOL TONES and STOLEN. Each group is so proud to be apart of this Veterans Day Celebration and eager to share their favorite songs with concertgoers on the Suffolk Center’s BirdSong Theater stage.

JUST US will have guests singing along to Classic Country – songs by Merle Haggard, George Strait, Dwight Yoakam, and Alabama. JUST US Band member Bill Daughtry shared that the group has been practicing non-stop and they can’t wait to play their favorite song … ‘The next one on the playlist.”

THE COOL TONES deliver Classic Rock, with crowd favorites by Van Morrison and Steely Dan. Tim Daniel said the band’s favorite song to perform is Neil Young’s classic ‘Cinnamon Girl’. The Suffolk Center even installed a special dance floor knowing The Cool Tones performance would release the urge to shake a leg. Adding that they are super excited to be playing in honor of our veterans.

STOLEN is the third band to take the stage with their ‘Acoustic Everything’ style. Patrons will love hearing favorites by Tom Petty, Johnny Cash, and Jimmy Buffet. Win Winslow shared the band’s favorite song is Jamey Johnson’s ‘In Color’ but no show would be complete without the Zac Brown Band’s ‘Chicken Fried’. All three bands will share the stage for an extra special heartfelt tribute to all our Veterans, Active Military and First Responders.
