Welcome to
The Farm Funk Music Festival  

Celebrating Local Farms, Brews and Music.

 

The Music

Farm Funk strives to support local, original artists of all ages and genres.  Our desire to support local music starts with young singers, songwriters, and instrumentalists who take to the stage to showcase their talents in front of their friends, family, and the community in which they live.  Our headlining acts are made up of local, professional musicians who demonstrate the wealth of talent Northwest Washington has to offer.

Matt & Amy's Basement Band  

 

8:00 PM:  Vocal duo, Matt & Amy Musselwhite, are relative newcomers to the music scene, but their high energy blend of country and rock has made them mainstays at local music venues.  Backed by a group of funk, jazz, and rock inspired musicians, the Basement Band's unique songs have a style all their own.  With songwriting that's inspired by everything from their southern roots to social issues, Matt & Amy leave no creative stone unturned.  

 

Kara Hesse

6:45 PM:  Kara is a soulful, bluesy powerhouse vocalist and a thoughtful songwriter who now makes the Pacific NW her home.  Kara has toured the country in support of her first album, Better by Morning, and she has her fans anxiously awaiting the arrival of her second.  Backed by an impressive group of local musicians, Kara's star is rising fast!  

 

In the Tree

5:30 PM:  Led by father and son duo, Leon Tucker Jr and Leon Tucker III, In the Tree is a funk infused pop band that will get you on your feet from the first slap of the bass.  With energetic, Motown-esque vocals and driving guitar licks, In the Tree manages to take you back in time while staying fresh at the same time.  These guys are a "can't miss" act for sure.

Tammy Frost Band 

4:15 PM:  Tammy Frost and her band have been entertaining the masses in and around Kitsap County, Washington for years.  You won't find a better blend of great vocals, songwriting, and mastery of instruments then the Tammy Frost Band.  Tammy's first studio album, "Sweet Goodbye" is an emotional blend that has her fans wanting more.  

 

Youth acts Russian Blue, Haleigh Grace, and Blackwood Backbeats will be kicking off the show.  Don't miss these young, up-and-coming talents as they take to the stage between 2pm and 4:00pm.  

 

The Scholarships

In 2017, Farm Funk teamed with the Washington Academy of Music and the Kitsap Community Agricultural Alliance to form two scholarship funds, one for young musicians and another for young farmers.  100% of proceeds from Farm Funk go toward these two scholarship funds.  At Farm Funk, we believe the best way to support local farming, local brewing, and local music is to adequately support the next generation of farmers, brewers, and musicians as they grow into the producers of tomorrow.  Click here for info!

 

The Farms

Farm Funk's partnerships with local agricultural organizations such as the Kitsap Community Agricultural Alliance, Kitsap Fresh, and the Kitsap Community Food COOP, is just the beginning of what Farm Funk does to support local farming in and around NW Washington.  Farm Funk promotes and supports local farmers' markets, encourages use of locally produced food in restaurants, and works to connect farmers with potential consumers year round.  The establishment of the Kitsap Community Agricultural Alliance Scholarship for young farmers is our latest way help ensure the future of our local farms and food production facilities.

The Brews

Farm Funk supports local breweries, cider houses, and wineries by stocking the Farm Funk Beer Garden with only the best beer, cider, and wine made right here in Washington.  Farm Funk also works year round with local businesses, musicians, and community members to support the production and sales of local beverages in and around Western Washington.  Farm Funk 2017 will feature beers from the award winning, Rainy Daze Brewing, ciders from Bushel & Barrel Ciderhouse, and wines from Chateau Ste. Michelle Winery.  All proceeds from beer garden sales go to the Farm Funk scholarship funds.  Also, wines sold in the Farm Funk Beer Garden this year support FareStart, an organization that combats homelessness, poverty, and hunger while supporting local, sustainable food in Washington.  The Farm Funk Beer Garden is just another reason to GET DOWN ON THE FARM! Please drink responsibly.
