The Singing Farmers

The Singing Farmers have entertained audiences throughout Yorkshire, County Durham and Cumbria for 10 years. They perform 4 concerts a year usually the two weekends prior to Easter weekend.

The Singing Farmers were brought together by Chris in 1994 to perform a show that features five individual singers and an extremely talented keyboard player.

‘It was only meant to be for one year,’ says Chris. ‘But it has mushroomed into an annual social event that everyone in the rural community looks forward to. This year we played to over 1,100 over the four concerts held in Skipton, Malton, Holmfirth and Northallerton.

The Singing Farmers have raised over £100,000 for the charity Royal Agricultural Benevolent Institution (RABI) since they started.

Three of the Singing Farmers are working farmers, one is the owner of a chain of farm supply shops and Chris is a respected rural journalist with the Yorkshire Post.

Full details of The Singing Farmers’ concert dates for 2014 will be available later this year via this website, but in the meantime you can purchase the 10th Anniversary CD, the seventh Singing Farmers album by checking out the details below.
