a combination of funk and angry grampa


Bay area, get ready for your ear drums to get rocked! Arann Harris and The Farm Band are described as one part dumpster fire, touch of summer camp, heap of Alt Gospel, served on a bed of bacon grease and git-down. His music is high-energy and highly entertaining. A mix of old time blues, mountain music, funk and angry Grampa.

The Group will be playing in two of November’s finest Bay Area shows – and you don’t want to miss them! On Saturday, November 21st, they’ll be opening for Sean Hayes at The Chapel in San Francisco and on November 27th, they’ll be joining the T Sisters and David Luning Band at The Mystic Theatre.

music: corner tour

Corner Tour is a band of charmers. We like to defy your ears with our melancholy mountain carnival. But don’t ask us what kind of music this is. Listen for yourself especially around bedtime for some dream inspiration. To listen, CLICK HERE!

A lightning bolt struck San Francisco in 1998 and Corner Tour was born. We began making music for films, circuses, fishing trips, pie parties, communitiy gatherings, and most especially, old folks homes. Stormy Knight plays horns & guitar, Caroline Shanti plays accordion & bass, Alicia McCarthy plays banjo & guitar, Carolyn Cooley plays accordion & sings, Elaine Buchkholtz joins us on Ektar & vocals. Listen for us in a train tunnel after midnight.

farm aid turns 30 and throws a rocking party, sept. 19, chicago

Farm Aid 30  will be at FirstMerit Bank Pavilion at Northerly Island on Saturday, September 19! Tickets on sale August 3 with (limited) discounted tickets available to farmers. There are plenty of ways for farmers, advocacy groups, and social media faries to get involved. More details: here!

If you aren’t familiar with Farm Aid yet, it’s a long-standing advocate of American farmers. Started with a benefit concert to help save family farms organized by Willie Nelson, John Mellencamp, and Neil Young in 1985, for the last 30 years the organization has been instrumental (har-har) in bringing attention to the marked decline of family farms, raising support for organic farming, and fighting for the survival of small and mid-range farmers.
