Live Music Performances Return to Bellewood Farms & Distillery

Live music is returning to Whatcom County’s Bellewood Farms & Distillery as its eight-week Farmtunes series starts July 23.

The free family-friendly outdoor concerts from 6-9 p.m. Fridays feature artists from throughout the Pacific Northwest. Farmtunes begins with Best Intentions, a duo of Ani Banani and Pete Irving playing a repertoire that encompasses jazz standards, old blues, contemporary diamonds in the rough, and a surprising amount of classic-sounding original music.

“Adults can sit and relax beneath the summer sky while children roam in the tire garden,” said Eric Abel, president of Bellewood Farms. “This is also an opportunity for us and others to support regional musicians who have gone more than a year without being able to perform in front of live audiences due to COVID-19.”

Bellewood Farms is located at 6140 Guide Meridian, between East Hemmi and Ten Mile roads and about seven miles away from Bellingham, Ferndale, and Lynden. Food and beverages are available from its Ten Mile Cafe. Free samples of farm-made spirits are served in the distillery’s tasting room.

Other groups scheduled during Farmtunes are July 30, High Mountain String Band, a progressive bluegrass band based in Bellingham; Aug. 6, Pickled Orka, the charmingly quirky couple of Todd and Paisley Gray; Aug. 13, Great American Trainwreck, a Seattle band blending southern rock, bluegrass, and classic country; Aug. 20, Sweater Weather String Band, which blends old-time, honky-tonk, Celtic, and indie rock influences; Aug. 27, Queen’s Bluegrass and its hard-driving, traditional bluegrass; Sept. 3, Handsome and Gretyl, plus Weak Sheep; and Sept. 10, Mark Wagner, offering Southern roots and an indie-pop style.

        We acknowledge that Whatcom County is located on the unceded territory of the Coast Salish Peoples. They cared for the lands that included what we’d call the Puget Sound region, Vancouver Island and British Columbia since time immemorial. This gives us the great obligation and opportunity to learn how to care for our surrounding areas and all the natural and human resources we require to live. We express our deepest respect and gratitude for our indigenous neighbors, the Lummi Nation and Nooksack Tribe, for their enduring care and protection of our shared lands and waterways.
