When we first heard there was an Indie folk band right next door who wanted to play the Market, we couldn’t say YES fast enough! And with song titles such as ‘Litterbug’ and ‘The Shady Tree,’ we knew for sure they would fit right in.
Bringing their melody driven pop to their Harvard neighbors, The Farewells are an acoustic duo from Boxborough, Massachusetts. Multi-instrumentalist and singer/songwriter Peter Linnane has played with numerous local and international acts, is a recording and mastering engineer and writes music for documentaries and commercials. Sam Linnane adds vocals and guitar to their melody driven arrangements. The Farewells mix acoustic pop, folk, rock and a pinch of electronica and poetry.
Be sure to arrive early this Saturday; their set starts right at 9a.m. A freshly brewed iced Americana, a vegan chocolate muffin, and The Farewell’s delicious interweaving of dark twang and sunny pop sounds to us like the perfect way to kick off a mid-August weekend.
