Big Farm is

Rinde Eckert, Mark Haanstra, Steven Mackey and Jason Treuting. The Band answers a call to each of these musicians to a place where the rules normative to the hard genres of music are set aside, making it possible for the group to express the eclecticism of tis members. It is a place where serious counterpoint can meet burlesque, earnestness meet abandon; a place where they can kick it or take it to tea, reflect, attack, mourn, dance, pray, or mock with ease or determination, joy or fervor, using any and all means necessary. This world is a Big Farm...lots of different crops, changing weather, livestock, and a duck pond for good measure.
