Songs For Seniors – Help FARM Give Back to the Iowa City Community

Folk Alliance Region Midwest is once again reaching out to the Iowa City community’s seniors and giving back by providing Songs for Seniors on Thursday morning, October 27th.  We still need a few caring musicians to be part of the fun.  Robinlee Garber and David G. Smith, two fantastic FARM supporters and attendees are arranging for volunteer musicians attending the FARM conference to perform on location at several Iowa City area senior facilities. Contact Robinlee Garber  if you want to participate or want more info.

Songs for Seniors is a real opportunity to spread the healing power and joy of our music.  Performing at senior facilities is also a great career opportunity.  The gigs tend to be on weekday afternoons and can be a real plus to your income stream and make touring more efficient.  Being part of FARM’s Songs for Seniors will introduce you to this performing opportunity.  In addition, the emotional rewards are amazing.
