About the event

Modern-folk duo Friction Farm are a husband and wife team of traveling troubadours.

Aidan Quinn and Christine Stay, combine storytelling, social commentary and humour 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 last CD, “Evidence of Hope ” , which reached #10 on the Folk Radio Chart, was inspired by the collision of strong political polarity with personal kindness, the intersection of fragility and breathtaking beauty. Somehow Friction Farm nurtured hope through a pandemic. In September 2024 they will release a new album of songs.

'It was a refreshing pleasure to include Friction Farm in the 2019 South Downs Folk Festival line up during their annual UK tour; Aidan and Christine are a charming couple of troubadours who complement each other beautifully; both have such strong voices that give their duo performance such presence and their strength in song writing and effortless repartee made for a compelling performance for both new fans and those who had travelled far to see them – we shall be having them back!’ – Simon Goodale, South Downs Folk Festival Bognor Regis, UK

'Friction Farm were a folk duo with message, but with message of the wonder and beauty of life and literature, of exploration and tolerance. Songs were chapters of their wonderful story and like the very best books, you didn’t want their set to end. Delightful company, exquisite players and animated performers, they absolutely dazzled us.' – Chris K from Live @ Thornsett Road  London UK

'What a wonderful performance! ...message, songwriting, musical talent, connecting with the audience, all just fantastic!  I am SO glad I was finally able to see what everyone has raved about.' - Deborah Bussinger Leesburg FL
