Farm to Music

Riverplains Farm Announces Riverplains Farm to Music Concert Series Presented by Mother Earth Meats

It is, in every way, in the best interest of urban consumers to be surrounded by productive land, well farmed and well maintained by thriving farm families in thriving farm communities.
— Wendell Berry

On Saturday, October 22 at Riverplains Farm the first Riverplains Farm to Music concert series event will take place. Presented by Mother Earth Meats and featuring Jennifer Niceley with an opening set by Josh Oliver. The farm opens at 6:00 PM with music from 7:00 – 9:00 PM.

The sit down concert proves a listening room experience under the open night sky. In addition to the music, enjoy a seasonal small plate featuring Mother Earth Meats and local, naturally grown produce prepared by Anna Niceley Barreiro. All beverages are bring your own. This is a family-friendly event.

Riverplains Farm to Music is an event rooted in agriculture and nurturing food traditions. At Riverplains agriculture is defined by cooperating with plant and animal life, forest, river, and human community on the farm. Riverplains embraces the nurturing food traditions that reclaim real food and the art of preparation that brings it to our table.

The evening will feature the soulful and passionate music stylings of Jennifer Niceley. Niceley’s music grows from the same soil as her passion for farming and food traditions. Her recent four-song EP Body + Soul walks the farm she came home to three years ago. Jennifer is delighted to perform these songs in concert on the land that inspired them.

The opening set will be from Knoxville native Josh Oliver. His strings and vocals summon an expansive landscape. His most recent album is Troubles.

During this first Farm to Music the fall harvest is upon us. Join us to offer thanks for summer’s abundance and celebrate the change of season. Join Riverplains farm for a night of music and food from the farm.
