The Foothills Equestrian Nature Center is excited to offer the third installment in their monthly concert series on Sunday, March 18, at  4 p.m.

The band Friction Farm will be the musical guest for this concert taking place in the Great room at FENCE; following the performance, refreshments will be served. This program is offered at no cost to the public, and is open to all ages.

The modern-folk duo, Friction Farm, is a husband and wife team of traveling troubadours. Aidan Quinn and Christine Stay combine storytelling, social commentary and humor to create songs of everyday life, local heroes and quirky observations. From ballads to anthems, each song is filled with harmony and hope. Friction Farm’s lyrically rich, harmony-driven songs have earned them spots as Kerrville New Folk Finalists and Falcon Ridge Emerging Artists.
