Waldo’s Coffeehouse presents on February 10: The South Carolina Folk Duo Friction Farm

In October 2016 they had planned to play at Waldo’s Coffeehouse. But then the fire in our sanctuary forced us to a last minute cancellation of their concert. Now we try it again, this time hopefully with more luck. On February 10, Waldo’s Coffeehouse presents Friction Farm. This modern folk duo from South Carolina are guitarist/vocalist Aidan Quinn and bassist/vocalist Christine Stay. Blending country, folk and pop into a seamless package, they bring a rare freshness and spontaneity to the stage. Friction Farm combines storytelling, social commentary and humor to create songs of everyday life, local heroes and quirky observations. From ballads to anthems, each song is filled with harmony and hope.

Their CD “I Read Your Book” features songs each inspired by a different book. Friction Farm’s previous recording earned them a spot as Kerrville New Folk Finalists and Falcon Ridge Emerging Artists. They were also winner of the Songwriter Competition at the South Florida Folk Festival. Miami New Times describes them as “melodious and infectious folk nuggets that couple pretty harmonies with a contemplative simplicity.” 

Christine and Aiden love to play at listening rooms and especially enjoy to be with UU fellowships. They also have been concert hour performers at SUUSI.  You can see, listen to samples of their songs, and read all about them  at

Waldo’s Coffeehouse offers also free Child care (preregistration at required until 2/7). The concert at Emerson UUC in Marietta starts at 7:00 PM. Doors open at 6:30 PM. Entrance donation is $10. Snacks are available, but contributions of members to our snack table are always appreciated. Adult beverages will be provided for a donation.
