FORT MYERS, FL (Jan 11, 2023) – Alliance for the Arts in partnership with the Americana Community Music Association (ACMA) is excited to present the second concert in our outdoor concert series with Silvia Medina opening for Friction Farm.
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, “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.
The AMCA series continues in 2023 on March 19th. Tickets are $15 for members of the Alliance for the Arts , $16 for non-members and are available online at ArtInLee.org or by calling 239-939-2787.
