Friction Farm


Modern-folk duo Friction Farm is a husband and wife team of traveling troubadours. Aidan Quinn and Christine Stay combine storytelling, social commentary and humor to create songs of everyday life, local heroes, and quirky observations. From ballads to anthems each song is filled with harmony and hope.

Friction Farm has performed internationally and toured the US. They feel at home on the road and on stage. Audiences lean into their stories, laugh at their humor, are inspired to do a little good in the world, and even sing along once in a while.

Friction Farm's latest CD, a collection of songs inspired by books, combines their love of reading and music – a project they describe as fun and frustrating, invigorating and exhausting, but always interesting. They were inspired by true tales The Voyage of the Beagle and fictional works - The Cellist of Sarajevo, a gift from a friend - Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter and a recommendation from a stranger - The Glass Castle. Occasionally life events filtered in and begged them to re-read books - Reading Lolita in Tehran and A Walk in the Woods.

Aidan and Christine have been performing as a duo for just over a decade. He's from Berkeley CA and she's from Woodstock NY. They met in college studying geology and engineering. Though they each had successful careers, their sense of adventure and love of music and travel were too strong to ignore. They hit the road with a handful of songs and never looked back. Friction Farm has performed across the US and in Europe, Asia, and Africa. When not touring Aidan does some woodworking and Christine bakes. They have a big garden and a small orchard at the sustainable home they designed and built in South Carolina.
