The Farnum Family is an active home-school family band consisting of six children all performing and/or promoting American & European-originated folk music from the early 1800's thru mid-1900's. With influence gleaned from bluegrass, folk, gospel, Irish, old-time standards, and cowboy & western, their diverse blend of music is styled in an almost-traditional string-band manner -- with 5-string banjo, fiddle, guitar, mandolin and upright bass, supported by piano and occasional harmonica. Their homespun and entertaining presentations -- whether for theater concert, church congregation or school assembly -- include appropriate academic dialogue & instrumental demonstration to captivate audiences, young & old.
