Bluegrass, Gospel, Irish, and Western Music…
From the Missouri Ozarks, the Farnum Family performs in the Branson area and around the country. For over 15 years they have taken their energetic blend of musical entertainment and homespun family humor throughout Missouri, the Midwest, and points beyond.
The Farnum Family performs at festivals, historic theaters, state and county fairs, and other family-oriented venues.
