Event description

Description

Greg Farley was born in Highland, NY, a small town on the Hudson River. His dad was a teamster who drove tractor trailers and his mom worked at the A&P. In 2006 he began touring out of his car playing house shows, small bars, and on the street, burning CDs, wrapping them in road maps, stamping GF on the front. From the east coast to California and back, he saw landscapes and cities that most of the people he grew up with never got the chance to see.

Upon returning he was lent a fiddle by a good friend, took up learning old time tunes from players like Ruth Ungar and Rudy Efram, before joining The Felice Brothers. He played and recorded with them for the next ten years, toured internationally, made it to the Billboard 200 list, and played as a member of Conor Oberst's backing band for his 2017 solo LP Salutations, all while working other jobs in his down time: He mucked stalls on a horse farm, waited tables at a vegetarian restaurant, worked as a carpenter, arborist, woodworker, and sawmill operator. Through it all, his music was the only constant.

Now Greg is striking out on his own with his debut album, Taker Easy, recorded in Stanfordville, NY with producer/engineer Nick Kinsey. For the album, Greg mines his own history for stories of class struggle, nature, love, pain, work, and family, all set against the backdrop of the northeast. Farley will be on the road promoting the release of his new record. At the end of the day, Farley has nothing to lose and something to say, and he’s saying it from the gut.

This project is made possible with funds from the Decentralization Program, a regrant program of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature and administered by the Greene County Council on the Arts.
