  1. Great Performers
    Great Performers
    Arguably the most versatile local singer, America's best 3 part harmony theatrical string band, and a top 50 songwriters of the past 50 year have played the Farm
  2. Americana and folk
    Americana and folk
    Our concerts lean toward Americana and folk, with great songwriting, and playing as the centerpiece. This place usually brings out their rock and roll hearts.
  3. Great Venue and Sound
    Great Venue and Sound
    We have been told that we have great acoustics for an outdoor venue. We like to think of the area under the tree canopy as an outdoor listening room.
MUSEF was inspired by a neighbor who thought it would be nice to do something to bring our neighborhood together. I agreed and suggested our big field might be a good place. That event never happened but a few months later my wife and I invited a 3 part harmony string band  from NYC to do a house concert. I was up by the barn, looking up the hill, and thought this might be a nice place for a stage under the tree canopy. Thus the project mushroomed as my wife insists my projects always do. We invited the neighborhood. This evolved into inviting close by neighborhoods. This further evolved into customers of the Pfafftown Post Office being invited. We ended up with about 250 folks. The thing that was so exciting for us, was seeing different groups forming circles for their own picnics. When the music started all these chairs turned to face the stage. We later met a couple that had, sometime before the concert, build a house about four miles away. The wife told us the concert was where they started to feel a part of Pfafftown. Now this is their forever home. We are not suggesting you must live in Pfafftown. Certainly not! Anyone who loves to make friends, can enjoy a picnic, but still listen to music listening room style is an honorary Pfafftownian. Correct pronunciation of Pfafftown is not mandatory. We will love you anyway. This is why we do these concerts a few times a year and what we hope you leave with.

We will open the farm gate at 6pm and encourage you to arrive at that time. Remember, our motivation for doing these concerts is to bring friends, neighbors, neighborhoods, and communities together. We love to see different groups coming together to share a picnic before the music starts.
