The Farmstand's Feel the Barn Concert Series Presents Amy Fairchild and Walter Parks

  • The Farmstand 1118 Page Hill Rd Chocorua United States (map)

Two of our favorite singer/songwriters return for a co-billed night of great music.
Having toured for 10 years with Woodstock legend Richie Havens and the found of the swamp blues outfit Swamp Cabbage, Walter learned the importance of delivering songs with relevant stories. Walter now lives in New York but he grew up in Florida and after Richie's passing he started researching music that was made in the Okefinokee Swamp near where he grew up, from Smithsonian Archives. He is presenting re-imagined arrangements of this southeast Georgia swamp music, originals and some Richie Havens songs in his new show.

Amy Fairchild is a multi-award winning songwriter living in Boston, MA. Right from the start of her musical career in Northampton, MA in 1996, this roots-pop beauty garnered high honors revealing a talented songwriter who deftly gets to the heart of the matter. She won the Lilith Fair Talent Competition in 1999 and took home a top Kerrville Folk Festival prize in 2001.
in June 2014 she released her self-titled third record to the acclaim of the best music writers in Boston including the legendary Steve Morse.  With 3 videos in support of the record worthy of the best airplay from the MTV days, Amy shows no signs of taking her foot off the gas as she's back in the studio working on a new record. Dave Marsh said, “If there still was a recording industry, this would come out on a major label and would be such a big hit you’d be sick of her by now. Not many people make records this good.” Her latest Release, "Nobody's Satellite, was released on April 25,2017

For all of shows, doors are at 6:00pm, with food available for purchase until 7:00pm when the music begins, and all shows are BYOB.
