Adler & Hearne: HOME

Welcome to the online home of Adler & Hearne (AKA The Song Farmers)! (updated November 9, 2019)  


THIS WEEKEND -- This weekend (Nov. 8-10) finds us in Western Kansas. SO BEAUTIFUL!!! Friday Nov 8 we led three songwriting workshops (with select groups of Jr. High, High School and 4th/5th Grade students) in Satanta, KS. Saturday, Nov 9 we play a community fried chicken dinner and concert at the Satanta High School cafeteria. And Sunday Nov 10 we provide special music at the First United Methodist Church in Sublette, KS. SALUTE to Satanta Area Arts Council for inviting us back to town following this past spring's awesome HPPR Music Ambassador Tour. Also thanks to Satanta schools and Sublette UMC. We're honored indeed.

The Song Farmers outstanding in their field.

CALENDAR NOTE: Kindly check back often to our Calendar page to see if we're headed your way. Better yet, reach out with an invite and we'll get YOUR house concert, or your community or church event on our tour itinerary for 2019-2020 and beyond.

And thank you for your patience as we get our online calendar up to date. This past year got us a little off our game. We took time off in December-January to care for Lindy's daughter Kate who was in serious condition at a hospital in Charleston, SC for more than a month. We're so grateful she MIRACULOUSLY survived, and now is on a healing path. Then earlier last year, we helped Lynn's parents make the transition from their spacious Carthage, MO home of 41 years to an Assisted Living apartment (due to their health concerns). A labor of love that continues with daily phone calls, and trips up to MO as often as we can make the trip. (We're always looking for new gig opportunities to get us up that way. Hint! Hint!)

We're getting back into the swing of things -- and we're back to working full time on concert bookings. We're excited to get back to focusing on new music projects too. Children's projects, a new Adler & Hearne duo project, and solo projects too. Yup!

It's a journey of faith for us as we work future concert bookings into the nooks and crannies of our days. We very much appreciate your reaching out to us to schedule a concert in your home, community or church in 2019-2020. We're independent artists and we handle all of our own bookings. Don't be shy about reaching out!

On October 27 we played the soulful Harmony House concert series at Wildscape Acres north of Bonham, TX at the home of hosts Faye Wedell and Scott Lipsett. It was a gorgeous fall Sunday afternoon, and we were so pleased to have a houseful of friends in attendance. And what SINGERS they were!!!

On October 17 we were delighted to provide a program of music in honor of the 50th Anniversary of St. Luke's Nursing Center in Carthage, MO where Lynn's parents now live. It was a delightful day!

On September 14-26 we journeyed to New England and back, visiting dear friends and family and playing a handful of choice house concert gatherings in PA and CT, including the awesome Trinity Church on the Green Coffeehouse Concert and Sunday morning church service, which is always so beautiful and touching. 

On September 4-10 we enjoyed a few days out to Michael Hearne's Big Barn Dance in Taos, NM. En route to and from we played concerts in Amarillo, TX (at Chalice Abbey) and Moriarty, NM (a lovely house concert series there). It was also very special to be brought up on stage a couple of times during the Big Barn Dance 'love fest.' Always good medicine there.

On August 29 we returned home from a four-day Artist-In-Residency in Coffeyville, KS for the community's Humanities Project. We gave 17 performances over the four days -- at the community college and many nursing homes, including five programs for the high school in nearby Caney, KS. Oh yeah, and a house concert on our way back home to TX!

On Sunday, May 5, 2019, we wrapped up our delightful two-week High Plains Public Radio Music Ambassador Tour. Hats off to High Plains Public Radio and all our gracious concert hosts and helpers along the way. It was an amazing journey, and we made wonderful new friends in the Texas and Oklahoma panhandles (Perkins, OK too at dear friend Monica Taylor's sweet house concert gathering!!), and all up and down Western Kansas. The High Plains rock, and we encourage you all to put that region on your bucket list.

Our Fall 2018 month-long tour took us on another full sweep to the Upper Midwest down through Tennessee, over to South Carolina and back across the Gulf Coast states to Home Sweet Texas. and our Summer 2018 tour took us from the upper east side of Texas to Arkansas, Missouri, Kansas, Illinois, Michigan, Pennsylvania, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Delaware, Virginia, South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama and Louisiana.
