Our Afro-Funk Fest Fundraiser on August  sold  out so quickly,  we decided to bring  the  band back for an encore performance.  We were able to raise  enough  to bring Sabouyouma to do a workshop at the Barnard Academy.

Thursday September 24th!  Tickets will be posted on feastandfield.com after  Monday. 


THE MUSIC  West African Afro-fusion funk band Sabouyouma will headline the event. Led by Ousmane Camara, a singer, balafon player and griot from Guinea, Sabouyouma is described by Seven Days as “more than just world music; it is world class.” 
More about the band.

About Music on the Farm

The music programming at Feast and Field grew out of Fable Farm’s early days when artists would play for the pass-of-a-hat under the maple trees at the CSA pick-ups.  Today, a full music series curated by Chloe Powell is produced by BarnArts Center for the Arts at Feast and Field.  BarnArts has served as a fiscal sponsor during the initial carving out of the music series as a non-profit entity, and now we are pleased to be including Chloe and the Thursday Night Music Series as one of our events along with other Music on the Farm ticketed events.  The music is still primarily supported by a “passing of the sap bucket” each Thursday, and by donations from Music on the Farm sponsors.  For more info on sponsorship for this event, please contact Chloe Powell at clovermont@gmail.com.

Feast and Field is located at 1544 Royalton Turnpike, Barnard, VT.

Music runs from 5:30- 8 pm, or whenever the band quits!

Doors open at 5pm

Chloe Powell, Director of Music Programming

Chloe grew up in Barnard and returned as an adult after time in Boston, Burlington and Italy. She was one of the original founders of BarnArts, but resigned from a general position in order to better focus on her mission of promoting all of Barnard’s event and establishing the Art on the Farm music series at the Feast & Field Market. She writes the weekly Barnard column for the Vermont Standard and the Herald of Randolph, and she is the director of Camp Red Clover. She is committed to a life as a musician, teacher and artist.
