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.

Chyeah Chyeah

 

8:00 PM:  Chyeah Chyeah's first time on the Farm Funk stage is sure to be a memorable one!  This Kitsap County powerhouse indie rock group's first album "Feel Good Be Dandy" is a funky, fun, dance-inducing fusion of guitar rock, synth-grooves, vocal prowess, and unique musicianship that deserves the attention it has received.   Farm Funk 2018 couldn't be happier to present Chyeah Chyeah!

Skinny Blue

6:45 PM:  This one's for the blues fans out there.  Skinny Blue, based in North Kitsap County, brings a fresh approach to old school, guitar driven blues.  Front man and songwriter Thys Wallwork leads the way, while being supported by one of the region's best rhythm sections.  With their second album in the works, Skinny Blue is already one of Kitsap County's favorite live acts.  Don't miss them as they grace the Farm Funk stage for the first time!

Tammy Frost Band 

5:30 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.  A Farm Funk mainstay, it just wouldn't be the same without Tammy and the boys!

Kara Hesse

4:15 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.  Kara's second trip onto the Farm Funk stage is guaranteed to please!

 

Youth acts Russian Blue, Gia Acosta, and The 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

Since 2017, Farm Funk and the Kitsap Community Agricultural Alliance have administered two scholarship funds, one for young musicians and another for young farmers.  100% of the 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.
