Touring behind his debut solo disc, Sebastopol, Farrar has been road bound since early 2001. He’s shared stages with the likes of Anders Parker, Brian Henneman, Gillian Welch and Peter Bruntnell along the way, playing to many a packed house.
With Farrar’s solo activities in full swing, it’s natural to question the status of Son Volt, his band since the demise of Uncle Tupelo. The group is, by all accounts, still together but are not active at this time. Their most current album is 1998’s Wide Swing Tremolo.
Known best for his involvement with the two bands, Farrar has been one of the more prominent players in the Americana/alt.country movement.
Some of the places Farrar and Spencer stop by on their 24-date outing include the Fox Theatre in Boulder, Colo., the Knitting Factory in Los Angeles, Nita’s Hideaway at Tempe, Ariz., Tipitina’s Uptown in New Orleans, Music Box in Omaha and Blue Note in Columbia, Mo.
