Chicago Farmer & The Fieldnotes – CD Release Show
Presented by Bob Teague & Friends
Chicago Farmer celebrates the release of his new album Flyover Country with this special show that features his full band The Fieldnotes. The son of a small town farming community, Cody Diekhoff logged plenty of highway and stage time under the name Chicago Farmer before settling in the city in 2003. Profoundly inspired by fellow Midwesterner John Prine, he’s a working-class folk musician to his core. His small-town roots, tilled with city streets mentality, are turning heads North and South of I-80.
He writes music for “the kind of people that come to my shows. Whether in Chicago or Delavan, everyone has a story and everyone puts in a long day and works hard the same way,” he says. “My generation may have been labeled as slackers, but I don’t know anyone who doesn’t work hard – many people I know put in 50-60 hours a week and 12 hour days. That’s what keeps me playing. I don’t like anyone to be left out; my music is for everyone in big and very small towns.”
