Modern-folk duo Friction Farm, is a husband and wife team of traveling troubadours. Aidan Quinn and Christine Stay, combine storytelling, social commentary and humor to create songs of everyday life, local heroes, and quirky observations.
“infectiously hummable tunes” New Times Magazine
They have toured internationally, been Kerrville New Folk Finalists, Falcon Ridge Emerging Artists, and South Florida Folk Festival Songwriter winners. Friction Farm’s latest CD, “So Many Stars” was inspired by their travels across the country witnessing the collision of strong political polarity with personal kindness, the intersection of fragility and breathtaking beauty. From ballads to anthems each song is filled with harmony and hope.
“intricate harmonies which are reminiscent of 1960s classics with a modern twist”
– Sun Journal New Bern NC
He’s from Berkeley CA, she’s from Woodstock NY. When not touring Aidan does some woodworking and Christine bakes. They have a big garden and a small orchard at the sustainable home they designed and built in South Carolina.
“They were utterly charming. Their well-written songs cover a wide gamut
and their delivery is spot on. They should be much better known”.
- Rich Warren, Host WFMT’s Folk Stage and Midnight Special
