Good company in a journey makes the way seem shorter. — Izaak Walton
Published by Andrew Farmer
Farmer is a poet, verser and lyricist from Desertmartin, Northern Ireland. A man both farm raised and fed; his writings equate to the lofty sum of an over familiarized infancy, educated in the linguistics of soil — of sap — of symmetry. He poetically and sequentially declutters a lifetime of thoroughly accumulated metaphor, rhythmically staggering his way home through the dimly lit groves of colloquialism and arboriculture. A postmodern monk with an ajar hearts rendered fragility; perfecting the art of articulation through the autonomy of a rurally instilled contemplative life.
Professionally as a musician, he has supported international artists such as ‘Nathaniel Rateliff’, ‘Gemma Hayes’ and ‘The Staves’, has released two records to date and toured extensively with his unique brand of folk genera —‘Sons of Caliber.’
“Andrew Farmer has managed to impress Northern Irish audiences and critics alike with his assured brand of folk music.”
“Farmer is an artist who has set incredibly high standards for himself.”
(Stephen Rainey BBC Radio Ulster for Culture NI)
