Sublime and SurrealMusician Moby and friends play WFAS!
The weather was perfect as pop icon and champion of animal rights Moby performed an acoustic set live here at the farm. Opening for Moby was his frequent female vocalist and award-winning film composer Kelli Scarr, who is now a solo artist in her own right. She and the amazingly talented Inyang Bassey performed on stage with Moby, belting out cleverly stripped-down

medley at the end which included an all-acoustic Black Sabbath cover! >>Read More
Read a great article by John Barry about the concert series, and an interview with Moby.

the one day we set up the farm to welcome well-behaved companion animals like dogs and cats
(on leashes or in carriers). The noted environmentalist and wild wolf activist Elke Duerr will officiate the ceremony.
As a special treat this year we're thrilled that the Redwing Blackbird Theater
