Brass Farthing is a group of stalwart lads brought together to sing songs, raise good cheer, and otherwise make merry in the company of friends both old and new. We take our inspiration from many periods and enjoy performing historical, traditional, and contemporary compositions in traditional styles.
Welcome to 2017 – The Year of Singing Dangerously
It has been said we live in Fictional Times. Somehow the streams were crossed, something traveled faster than light, reality is an illusion and we are all figments of someone else’s imagination.
In response, the boys are on a mission: Sing Dangerously. Transform into the larger than life characters that this fictional world demands of us. Become heroes. And with that, we present an intrepid calendar of performances, journeying from Steampunk to Folkie to Pirate to Whalers and back to our roots as characters in a yet-to-be-written novel by Charles Dickens.
Journey with us as we present new songs, new styles, new surprises and of course, a little danger.
