Friction Farm to perform at FENCE on Sunday, June 21st

FENCE is excited to be able to offer free concerts to the community again!

On Sunday, June 21, Friction Farm will be performing in the outdoor pavilion at 4:00 p.m. This concert is free and open to the public, registration is required to attend.

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. Their lyrically rich, harmony-driven songs earned them spots as Kerrville New Folk Finalists, Falcon Ridge Emerging Artists, and South Florida Folk Festival Songwriter winners. Friction Farm’s latest CD, “So Many Stars”, which reached #6 on the Folk Radio Chart, was inspired by travels across the country witnessing the collision of strong political polarity with personal kindness, the intersection of fragility and breathtaking beauty.

In order to allow this programming, FENCE is making some slight changes to adhere to NC guidelines and ensure a safe experience for all who attend. The program will be moved outdoors to the pavilion adjacent to the FENCE center. The pavilion is covered to allow for shade and protection from rain. Pre-registration will be required to attend the program. We will be limiting the number of attendees to keep in line with Phase 2 restrictions on outdoor gatherings. Please register by calling FENCE at 828-859-9021 or emailing info@fence.org. We are encouraging attendees to wear facemasks and do their best to social distance. Seating will be spaced out more than usual and hand sanitizer will be available. Thank you for understanding and FENCE is looking forward to seeing the community again

This program is made possible by the Kirby Endowment at the Polk County Community Foundation. FENCE is located at 3381 Hunting Country Road in Tryon.
