Hello and welcome to FrontDoorFarmMarket... dot com!
We're happy to have you stop by for a visit.

I do not even know where to begin to recap the year we had and I am going to bet a lot of you have that feeling. Ours started, that is January, in Texas.

We were at the very bottom tip known as the Rio Grande Valley where Texas meets up with Mexico, of course we all know it was Mexico at one time but that is another discussion! We were playing music for the RV parks that are scattered over the many cities of that area. The RV parks host many events for the “Winter Texans” (they don’t like the term snowbirds anymore). What we thought was to be a good fit for us turned out to be not so much. The folks who saw us really enjoyed themselves but we think they prefer entertainers who do the cover tunes and corny humor, familiar to their ears and culture.

We had a nice time though exploring the valley, eating some of The Best Mexican Food and enjoying the weather but were ready to get back home knowing we probably wouldn’t be back.

Then came March……… we had a full schedule, looking forward to a year of fun and music. Oh Boy! I will quickly share with you how it went down with us. First Norman cancelled, then Queensferry, Grand Lake…..but wait lets back up to March again, we had 2 wonderful St Patrick gigs lined up with Senior Living Facilities along the way. As the news got grimmer and foreboding our Senior Facilities dropped off one by one as we were packing for Tennessee for one of our St Pat’s gigs, (a wonderful private party we did last year and asked again to perform. Thank you, Annette!) So, still hoping that that was still a go we headed out, just waiting for a call. We arrived in Tennessee to an empty hotel, that was our first clue. The gig went as scheduled, awesome!

We headed out and made a rash decision to stop in Nashville, expecting a ghost town, HA, HA, HA. It was packed! The virus was so new at that point we all weren’t ready to take it seriously. We traveled onto Clarksville and booked a cool old Hotel right by the river, empty. It reminded us both of The Shining; we were just waiting for Jack to show. The next morning, we headed to Cape Girardeau to our next St. Pat’s gig we also did last year at Katy O’Ferrell’s, Thank you Chris! And to another empty hotel! We tuned into Governor Cuomo giving his news briefings and just waited for… the call. Chris with Katy’s decided to go ahead and we played all day into the evening, having a great time. The very next day and I mean the very next day the word came down to shutdown.

We hurried home and quietly listened to our world silenced. Then of course more and more gigs cancelling until there was no more to cancel. We looked at each other, not really knowing what to do next and… planted a great garden! We also have had the great opportunity and pleasure to do some virtual programming with Mid Continent Public Library out of Kansas City, Thank you Angela and storytelling with MO-TELL. I will have these on our You Tube Channel. We were blessed to not fall into financial hardship and took care of each other’s mental stability, well as best we could and are still kind of wondering what the future holds. We are moving ahead with a new Faire, Avalon, which we are excited to join and OKRF is planning a 2021 season, from there we are still waiting for announcements and pondering our “what next” motto. I didn’t mean to make this so long but wanted to share our story of the year 2020. 2021 ???? Let’s go!
