Sean Farley

Born in Williamsport, PA, music has been a part of my life since the beginning. My grandmother has been a professional pianist and music teacher for twice the length of my lifetime! I grew up around her pianos and organs and was always drawn to their beautiful sounds. It was clear that music was deeply engrained in my heart and soul. I have been learning to play instruments such as piano, voice, violin, drums, bass, and guitar since the age of five. These days, playing the guitar and singing consumes my life and my future!

Hops & Vines

Christie: I've been singing, basically, my whole life. I used to bang on our piano at home and attempt to play a guitar. I'd play any instrument you put in front of me. I didn't say I'd play it well.

My family had eclectic taste in music, so I grew up listening to artists like Stevie Ray Vaughn, Patsy Cline, Glen Miller Orchestra, and Conway Twitty. Throw in some classic rock, pop, and blues, that was my household. My biggest influences are Ann Wilson (Heart), Patsy Cline, Janis Joplin, The Beatles, and Springsteen.

 I "borrowed" my brother's Springsteen box set and never returned it (sorry, Paulie!). And had a tendency to "borrow" my sister's tapes as well. Hmm, I guess I was a cassette-klepto! It's ok, I don't have a boombox anymore, so no need to hide your music! I remember how much I loved being able to pick out a new 45 when I'd go shopping w/ my parents. The Bangles, Wham, ABC (why, yes, i do love the 80's, why do you ask?) spinning on my Michael Jackson record player. I wore out Billy Vera and the Beaters on that machine.

Jonathan: The first CD I ever got was the Aladdin Soundtrack. And the rest is history....

Let me try that again. My second CD was Shaquille O'Neal's platinum-selling album, "Shaq Diesel." (It went platinum. Seriously.)...

 Take 3... Nirvana's "Bleach" was lined up to be my third CD, but the record shop didn't have it. I bought Pearl Jam's "Ten" instead, and that (for real this time) set the stage for a lifetime of musical influence and fandom. Over the past 20 years, my interests have expanded, and now include classic rock, punk, folk, bluegrass, techno, and Shaq's last three albums (Seriously. There's four of them). I've been writing songs for almost 20 years. I play the guitar, and dabble with the bass, piano, and ukulele. I also try to sing. Outside of Pearl Jam, my influences are REM, Queen, Josh Ritter, Barnstar, Bob Dylan, Pendulum, and Shaquille O'Neal.

 I am very lucky to have the opportunity to play music Christie can wail to. I love playing live music, seeing people dancing/singing along, learning new tunes, and going new places. I've also taught myself to hold in my winces when 80's music is brought to the table.

Saturday November 30th

Eric Ian Farmer

Born in State College, Pennsylvania and raised in North Carolina, Eric Ian Farmer has returned to his birthplace sharing his songs about relationships, social awareness, and finding one's path in life while keeping alive classics by artists like Marvin Gaye, Otis Redding, and Bob Marley.  Eric learned how to become one with a song from Bonnie Carter and David Williams, singers in the church of his childhood just across the North Carolina state line in Danville, Virginia.  Eric also draws inspiration as a singer from popular artists like Bobby McFerrin, Stevie Wonder, and Marvin Gaye.  And his guitar playing is inspired by the percussive stylings of rock legend Bo Diddley.

As an educator and a 2016 graduate of Penn State's educational leadership program, Eric also uses music with high school students to facilitate both songwriting and conversation related to identity and social issues.

 


Saturday December 7th

Chris Carithers

Coal towns, ghost towns, old men re-telling old stories— Christopher Carithers brings an old soul’s perspective to each of his songs. Each word has been lived and earned. Real stories from real people-- seasons of weakness, riddles in dreams, corner bars and fire halls, doctors, saints, and bombardiers… Christopher Carithers invokes Steinbeck & Salinger; walks us past painted porches and familiar faces; pauses beside rusting bridges. He lays us down beneath shooting stars. Chris, a rust-belt writer and self-taught guitarist, is a life-long lover of roots rock, modal jazz, and improvisational performance. A native of the coal fields of Eastern Pennsylvania, Chris brings the boom and bust of his own story into his music.
