The members of Farmteam are five accomplished musicians. They are friends, with a creative, open-minded chemistry built upon decades of mutual respect and a desire for continued artistic growth. It’s out of this relationship that the group's original songs and reinvented covers are created.  Their upcoming 11-song recording has been a labour of love and, no surprise, the project is hugely meaningful for all involved.

Live, the Farmteam stage is cluttered with acoustic guitars, mandolins, violin, banjo, bass, and drums.

Something for everyone, the band can play a perfect waltz over dinner, then rock the house down after. Tap your toe to Farmteam or dance a hole in the floor.
