Jason Ringenberg of Jason and the Scorchers fame created his pastoral alter-ego to teach children about farm life and the wonders of nature. The character is based on his own farming background.
The concert at the Belcourt Theatre will be a mix of sing-alongs and dancing. It’s just Farmer Jason performing solo with just his acoustic guitar, drawing from folk, country, and rock ’n’ roll with a dash of DIY punk rock. He’ll also discuss nature appreciation, ecology and farm animals.
Children ages 2 to 8 are the target audience for this spontaneous, high-energy event, but of course everyone is invited to get involved—so join us!
Farmer Jason has three records and a DVD to his credit, as well as “It’s a Farmer Jason,” an Emmy-winning short video shown on several public television stations around the country. His records have won numerous awards, including the Parents’ Choice Gold Award and the Los Angeles Times’ Children’s Record of the Year list.
