Carey Farrell

 Chicago, Illinois, USA

quirky folky goodness


Carey Farrell likes to sing. Sometimes, she sings her own songs, about kindergarten romance and grocery store girls and asparagus. Sometimes, she sings songs by other people, like Joni Mitchell and the Monkees and David Bowie. And sometimes, she just likes to sing about the wheels on the bus, and how they go round and round, round and round, all thru the town.

Carey likes to sing for big people, small people, and all the people in between. And she will sing anywhere she can. No, really, just about anywhere, as long as people will be nice to her and listen--coffeehouses, churches, farmer's markets, birthday parties, street corners, living rooms, festival campsites, you name it. Maybe you would like Carey to sing for you sometime. I bet she'd be happy to do it, and I should know.
