Stay, Christine Songs Inspired By Books Music
Modern folk duo Friction Farm will perform songs and describe how each book inspired a song. The songs are, for the most part, not about the books. The books provided a catalyst for creative thought, sometimes a very direct path to a song and sometimes a very circuitous route connecting stories, real-life events, and imagination. Program can be amplified or completely acoustic. Typically about an hour, the program can be modified in length from 45-90 minutes and can include audience discussion if desired. We will try to work within any library budget and we travel with a small sound system. Music and video available at www.frictionfarm.com
