The Sequim-based band featuring Jim Faddis, Rick Meade, John Pyles and Cort Armstrong recently brought its harmonies to Portland, Ore., for a couple of shows after playing a sold-out concert last month at Peninsula College's Maier Hall.
Friday's Gardiner show, to start at 7 p.m., marks FarmStrong's first anniversary as a band — and is a different ballgame from its regular gig at Wind Rose Cellars, the wine bar in downtown Sequim.
The group often plays there Thursday nights while people sip and chat. Some have told Faddis they can't hear the music too well, so he and his bandmates put together this pure concert at the Gardiner center.
It'll be a night for listening — though there might be some dancing behind the chairs, Armstrong noted.
Tickets are available in advance through www.brownpapertickets.com for $8. Any remaining will go for $10 once doors open at 6:15 p.m. Friday.
