Modern-folk duo “Friction Farm” will make their Sundilla Acoustic Concert Series debut on Friday, June 3. Showtime will be at 7:30 p.m. at Pebble Hill, located at 101 S. Debardeleben in Auburn (weather permitting, it will be an outdoor show.)
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 the honor of Kerrville New Folk Finalists and Falcon Ridge Emerging Artists and South Florida Folk Festival Songwriter winners.
Friction Farm’s last CD, “Evidence of Hope”, which debuted at No. 10 on the Folk Chart, was released during that strange period of confinement. The songs bear witness to the hope found in the collision of strong political polarity with personal kindness, the intersection of fragility and breathtaking beauty, in new life and even in death. From ballads to anthems each song is filled with harmony and hope.
Advance tickets are just $15 and can be found at Spicer’s Music, Ross House Coffee and online at www.sundillamusic.com.
Admission at the door will be $20. Free coffee, tea, water and snacks will be available, and if the concert is outdoors The Chill Spot will be on hand selling hot dogs, tacos and frozen treats. Attendees are always welcome to bring their own favorite food or beverage.
The Sundilla Acoustic Concert Series is a non-profit cultural organization, and a subordinate of Folk Alliance International, Inc. The mission of Sundilla is to bring professional touring musicians from outside of the area to Auburn, and to present them to listeners in a smoke-free listening-room environment.
