Farm to play the Dusty Armadillo

By Kelly Maile | Staff Writer Published:

Nashville band The Farm, made up of Nick Hoffman, Damien Horne and Krista Marie, will bring its country sound to the Dusty Armadillo, 3147 S.R. 44, in Rootstown, on Saturday.

Vocalist and guitarist Krista Marie said the band brings three different elements together.

Coming from different musical backgrounds, Hoffman was a country traditionalist and longtime fiddle player for Kenny Chesney, Marie was a former solo artist and Horne, discovered by John Rich, started opening concerts for artist John Legend.

The trio found each other in Nashville and formed an "instant connection," Marie said.

The group blends hip-hop, rock, R&B and pop to create an edgy country mix.

The trio will perform songs like "Fresh Off the Farm," and "Be Grateful," which draw from classic rock and pop influences while "Home Sweet Home" features intense, multilayered vocal harmonies and fast instrumental breakdowns.

Although the band brings in many different music genres and musical styles, the trio keeps it country with their old-school country twang, acoustic guitar melodies and fiddle hooks.

Doors open at 7 p.m. and the show starts at 10 p.m. Tickets are $12. Ages 18 and over are welcome. For more information, call 330-325-0647 or visit www.dustya.com.
