A touch of Appalachia comes to Hunter At Sunrise as recording artist Dori Freeman pays her first visit Sunday

Fresh off the release of her new album, Every Single Star, Dori Freeman is our guest on Hunter At Sunrise this Sunday morning. Raised in Galax, Virginia, Dori was discovered by Teddy Thompson, the son of singer/songwriters, Richard and Linda Thompson.  She now has three critically acclaimed albums to her credit. We were able to sit down with her for an acoustic session when she was here in Norfolk for her cd release party. During the session, Dori shares how establishing a growing family has affected her musically and her belief that Appalachian music is often misunderstood. Hope you can join us for this very special interview as Dori Freeman visits Hunter At Sunrise this Sunday.   For more about Dori Freeman, click HERE.
