Episode 3 at Fontana's
Featuring: Ada, Emily Helming, Mark Farmer, Taylor Bell, Ryan Convertini on percussion, and Charles Duke (special guest) A community of songwriters exposing their talents, messages, and love of music with each other by joining together and collaborating with each other's songs and stories. The combination of those talents along with the skills of a master percussionists creates a show that none should miss. "Farmer and Friends" provides both audience and artist a unique experience that is very distinct from a typical songwriters' showcase. Described as a "Songwriter Supergroup", the artists perform a collaboration piece of each artists' original songs. With up to 5 singer-songwriters, each artist's fan-base is introduced to the other artists and their music. All performers participate throughout the entire performance, so each artists' fans are introduced to not just a very talented group, but a show of variety and genre. With each song performed as a full band. This is a treat for both artist and audience. Each artist acts as director of the group for their songs. This allows them to use their creativity to expand on their works as well as provides the artists' fans with a fresh new version of some of the favorite songs. The show exposes how truly talented these artists are. With only minimal rehearsal time (typically one hour prior to the show), the audience members are truly in awe throughout the show with how in-sync the group is. It is not your typical "jam session" as these songs are all choreographed by its creator. It all unfolds before their very eyes and ears and the results make for a fascinating experience.
