Even if it hadn't been dominated by dance music, Grace Potter, a traditional, meat-and-potatoes rock singer would have been an outlier at this year's FreeFest. That's because she was one of only two women on the bill (the other was singer-songwriter Patti Smith). Her presence was a welcome addition to the bill: Potter is a furious, old-fashioned rocker, a Stevie Nicks in the body of Sienna Miller. But rock isn't her only register: Recently, she's flirted with country music, and both genres were on display here.
