Stevens Family – Down On The Farm

The Stevens Family Bluegrass BandThe Stevens Family Bluegrass Band, from Berkeley Springs, WV, have a total of four CDs, but are especially excited now about their new single, Down On The Farm, produced by Don Rigsby.

The song was written and sung by Sissy Stevens, who plays bass with her family’s band. Her parents J.W. (banjo) and Nancy (vocals) lead the group, along with their other children Luke (guitar), Ben (mandolin), Sam (fiddle) and Tommy (vocals).

Down On The Farm tells a story familiar in the bluegrass world, living the rural life with hard work and family at the center. It’s a story that Sissy knows well. J.W. is a trapper in the mountains where they live, and Nancy raises chickens. Sissy runs a produce stand where she sells her mom’s fresh eggs, organic fruits, honey, juices and other natural products. The Stevenses also host bluegrass jams at the market, and folks in the part of West Virginia visit regularly to pick and sing, or just have a listen.

Here’s a taste of the new single.


Radio programmers can download the single now from Airplay Direct. For more details about The Stevens Family, contact their representatives at the Graham Talent Agency.
