ALBUM RELEASE SHOW
CHICAGO FARMER & THE FIELDNOTES
RYAN ACKER of THE LAST REVEL
“Previously, frequent comparisons to the works of famed folk troubadour Arlo Guthrie have been spot on. With this impressive step forward in song craft and dimension, Chicago Farmer has moved beyond any previous limitations and associations. Storyteller, humorist and heartfelt proponent of the core values of humanity itself, Chicago Farmer has always had a message of compassion that the world truly needs to hear. Thanks to the added power of the band backing his insight and infectious spirit he is ready to take his message farther than ever before.” —Live For Live Music
