Dear Farnums,

We are so glad that you could come play at the festival & visit with us for a couple of days! Thank you for participating in GospelGrass - you all really added a lot to that day & I know many people enjoyed your music.

Norm, thanks for being such a great emcee & for doing the banjo workshop. That was such a help!

Love you all,

The Farnum Family in Concert @ 7 pm, January 13, 2007

January 18, 2007

The Ozark Arts Council and Buffalo River Concert Association recently presented The Farnum Family at the Lyric Theater in Harrison Arkansas. A large crowd came out on the night of the worst ice storm to hit the Midwest in years. Norm and his family arrived on time (we had a blowout going down) and gave a great performance of bluegrass, gospel and old time music. The crowd gave standing ovations to the younger members of the group to encourage them to continue while the older members were masterful on their instruments. Together the Farnum Family is a joy to watch and have found new fans in North Arkansas.

Hi Y’all,

Thanks so much for attending the Missouri League of the South meeting... Your music was a blessing and most entertaining. However, even more of a blessing to me personally was the testimony of your lives when not on the stage. It was obvious that yours is a family that loves the Lord and each other. You are a living witness as to what it means to be in the center of God’s will.

Thanks again for making the state meeting such a success.

God Bless Y’all,

Bob Mills
