Based out of the Branson, Missouri area, the Farnum Family currently consists of four siblings with mom & dad, performing roots music of their American & European heritage. Featured are amusing and lively tunes from the early 1800's thru 1900's. With influence gleaned from bluegrass, folk, gospel, Irish, old-time standards, and cowboy & western, their diverse musical blend is styled in a quasi-traditional string-band fashion with 5-string banjo, fiddle, guitar, mandolin and upright bass, supported by piano and pennywhistle. Depending on the venue and occasion, their homespun and entertaining presentations include appropriate academic dialogue, family harmonies, and instrumental demonstration to captivate audiences of all ages. A special feature is their award-winning daughter, Hannah, who plays Irish, Texas swing & old-time fiddle styles. As a traveling family band, they have been featured at the Missouri State Fair, Buffalo Bill Cody Stampede Rodeo, Gateway Arch, George Washing Carver National Monument, International Washboard Festival, Ozark Folk Center, Silver Dollar City and many other venues throughout the Midwest. Additionally, they are recipients of numerous regional band, instrumental & vocal awards. They are available for corporate event, theater concert, county/state fair, school assembly, as well as church service or events.
For large concert environments: 6 vocal mics (or 4 vocal and 2 instrumental), acoustic piano (or direct box for electric), direct box (or mic) for upright bass. For small venues, power source (for artist-provided system). Pure bottled water & healthy snacks…which may include dark chocolate!
