Jay and Janet Bailey have been diversified family farmers at Fair Winds Farm in Brattleboro for 38 years. Working as a farmer, Jay Bailey has collected a unique repertoire of songs that mirror the rhythms of farm life. His singing and fiddle playing are a direct expression of his love for the land and for the seasonal changes that determine the yearly progression of work that is essential to farming.
The program will be of interest to those who love traditional music, local history, and the agricultural heritage. The songs, tunes, and recollections will cover many topics including the changing seasons, working with horses, stone walls, haying, and the beauty of living out of doors and close to the land in New England.
