Letters of Recommendation

Jefferson National Expansion Memorial / Ozark Folk Center / Pretty Prairie Civic Theatre / Silver Dollar City

In the course of our many music performances during the last few years we have developed some fine friendships and business relations. In our current pursuit for inclusion on the Missouri Touring Performers Directory and School Rosters produced by the Missouri Arts Council, we requested and acquired some formidable Letters of Recommendation. The following are hereby shared for the convenience of pastors, presenters and promoters interested in booking the Farnum Family.

To Whom It May Concern:

We have been acquainted with the Farnum family for several years since we first saw them and listened to them perform at Silver Dollar City in Missouri. My wife and I do the scheduling of the movies and the live events at our Civic Theatre and we are always looking for new talent.

We were immediately impressed by their considerable talent and stage presence. We went back again to listen to another performance of theirs and after we listened again, we asked them if they would consider coming to our Civic Theatre. Their impeccable family harmonies were exactly what we were looking for in our town.

Our town likes Bluegrass, Gospel and Old Time music which is exactly what the Farnum family provides. Their children from the oldest to the youngest are very talented and the whole family provides a wonderful evening of entertainment. They have performed twice on our stage and are scheduled for two more programs in the future.

We highly recommend this family group for any venue, both large and small. They present a clean family show that anyone can attend. They are presenting and preserving a great part of American music.

To Whom It May Concern:

This letter is in support of The Farnum Family Band of Galena, Missouri. The group is well known to me, as I have booked them for performances at Silver Dollar City on a number of occasions.

The Farnum Family was included in our Bluegrass & BBQ Festival in 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, and they are scheduled to return in May of 2010. They also served us during our Southern Gospel Picnic Festival of 2006 (and 2008, as well as their Festival of American Music & Crafts of 2007).

I recommend The Farnum Family as ambassadors of the rich musical heritage of Missouri. I know the group to be accomplished both instrumentally and vocally, and they are entertaining on a professional level. This group is also flexible and sensitive to the needs of the promoter.

Yours truly,
