Farm & Home

Location: R.A. Fountain

From our promo for this show:

Local bluegrass favorites Farm & Home start the weekend’s music off with a show and concert on Thursday night. Fronted by Shorty Mooring, whose inimitable stylings and onstage antics always make him a crowd-pleaser, the band also includes excellent musicians. Mooring is one of the best and most prolific songwriters in a region rich with undiscovered talent.

Brothers Bob Gaddis, on banjo, and Jim, on mandolin, are natives of Ohio whose early influences were the Osborne Brothers and Stanley Brothers.

H.C. Croom plays rhythm guitar and John Booker rounds out the group on bass.
