Florence Dore is a Nashville-born, North Carolina-based independent musical artist whose most recent release, Highways and Rocketships won the Best Americana album of 2022 at Lonesome Highway Magazine. The road from her first LP Perfect City (Slewfoot 2001) to Highways and Rocketships has been anything but straight—and that’s not even counting the pandemic delays. She has spent a lot of that time between then and now riding around on Steve Earle’s tour bus, catching up with her Dukes-drumming husband Will Rigby. She also wrote a book, put on a conference at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and took a seat on the board at the Bob Dylan Institute. Somewhere along the way she and Will had a kid too. Back in 1994, the Posies covered her song “Christmas” on a 1994 Geffen compilation, Just Say Noel, while Florence was making her way in the music scenes of Boston, New York, San Francisco, and Cleveland. Highways an Rocketships was produced and recorded by none-other than Don Dixon and Mitch Easter (REM, etc.) at Fidelitorium. Florence and her ace touring band—comprised of the dB’s rhythm section, husband Will and Gene Holder, as well as Mark Spencer (Son Volt)—are out and about now.
Dore’s book The Ink in the Grooves: Conversations on Literature and Rock ‘n’ Roll was released October 15.
“Each year unearths previously unknown exceptional artists to us all at Lonesome Highway. For this writer, Florence Dore is most certainly one of the discoveries of 2022.” —Declan Cullitin, Lonesome Highway
“A wise and tender collection of rock, folk, and vintage Southern power-pop.” —Brian Howe, INDYWEEK
“Like a younger Lucinda Williams, Dore lets economy be her guide, whether sketching out subtleties of a Tennessee family’s history in the hillbilly ballad “No Nashville”, or detailing blown bank accounts and blown dreams in the lovely dulcitar/organ-spackled midtempo waltz “Early World”. Which would all be for naught, of course, if Dore didn’t have the throat and musicianship to back it all up. But she does…” – No Depression
“Florence Dore is both sterling songwriter and august academic, and is thus uniquely qualified to captain The Ink in the Grooves, her new book which brings together savvy rockers and their fiction-writing counterparts to create as sweet a mailbag full of love letters as has ever been assembled on the subject.”
Peter Holsapple, the dB’s and Continental Drifters
Here’s a great piece from The Daily Beast: https://www.thedailybeast.com/florence-dore-rocks-out…



Unless otherwise specified, most concerts have a set time that doors open (usually 7pm) with the music beginning one hour later (usually 8pm). Bands typically perform a 35–45-minute set, and ideally take only 15 minutes to switch acts. Therefore, a four-band night will have acts beginning their sets at the top of the hour (8, 9, 10, and 11) and the show will wrap up around midnight.

In practice, schedules slip all the time. Musicians, like other Artists, can be temperamental. We always strive to keep schedules tight. Managing musicians has been compared to herding cats. We beg for understanding when you attend shows and the break between acts seems too long. You can express any displeasure to the promoters at the door, or you can just have another drink and enjoy time with your friends. We hope you enjoy every event you attend at Mohawk Place. Please speak to a bartender or security staff if anyone is harassing you or threatening harm to you or anyone else. We will take immediate action.


Promotes will arrange for the night’s musical lineup, decide on set times and load in times, manage the door and pay the bands. Bands should follow all instructions from their promoter, bartenders and security personnel, and the sound technician mixing their performance. That is the best way to have a successful show.

When your time comes to set up, QUICKLY get your gear on stage and ready to perform, and direct your attention to the sound tech so he can get levels on each channel, instrument and microphone. He will start with the drums, then bass, guitars, keys or horns, and vocals. Please make sure that your group has gotten their drinks, visited the bathroom, had their cigarette, kissed their lover and are ready to set up AND PLAY when their time slot begins. Delaying your start time will NOT get you more time at the end of your set.

When you’ve completed your set, QUICKLY tear down your gear and exit the stage. Any “encore” you play MUST be done DURING your set times. Bands should NEVER selfishly extend their sets by playing over their stop time. Sound techs WILL cut off microphones or turn out lights if necessary. Please be considerate of your fellow performers.
