Now in its 20th year, KJHK’s Farmers’ Ball is a chance for bands from the Lawrence area  to revel in the glory of bragging rights, new fans and cash prizes. A staple in the Lawrence music scene for two decades, this annual battle of the bands is a mega showcase of local music talent. The event is being co-presented by KJHK 90.7 FM and Student Union Activities.

This year, KJHK and SUA will be blowing up Farmers’ Ball beyond recognition. THE WINNING BAND RECEIVES $2,000, SECOND PLACE WINS $1,000, and the runners-up receive great promotional prizes as well.

KJHK and SUA student staff will listen to and review all submissions, and narrow down the field to 16 acts selected for a preliminary online voting round. Those 16 bands will be unveiled on Monday, March 24.

Online voting to narrow down the field to 8 semi-finalists will open at noon Monday, March 24 and close on Friday, April 4. The 8 semi-finalists for Round 1 of Farmers’ Ball will be announced on Sunday, April 6. Those bands will compete for audience votes at the live semi-finals show on Saturday, April 19 at the Bottleneck.

Based on audience voting during the semi-finals show, 4 bands will advance to the final Farmers’ Ball round on Saturday, April 26 at the Bottleneck. An audience vote during that show will determine the winner and runner-up of the 20th annual KJHK Farmers’ Ball.

Serkan Çağri is one of the most popular and highly-regarded clarinetists in Turkey today. He is joined by a seven-member band, and together, they create upbeat folk music that explores the rhythm of the Balkans and the pulse of the Mediterranean.

Çağri began playing the clarinet at the age of seven. After winning special recognition in a prestigious national clarinet competition in his early teens, he honed his craft in Turkey’s finest music conservatories. Since that time, Çağri has played solo, with bands and ensembles and with some of the world’s finest musicians. In addition, the world’s leading clarinet manufacturers commissioned him to redesign the pitch of the instrument, resulting in a new clarinet titled the “Serkan Çağri” model.

Today he is a popular composer and musical director for film and television. He also hosts his own music series on Turkish national television and is featured in the May 2013 episode of the PBS series Music Voyager.

Cost: Adult $21/ Student or Youth $10

Rarely has life been imitated with such precision or with such pathos. Joseph Cashore’s hand-built marionettes replicate stunning effects, like toes wiggling from the hole in a shoe and a mother holding her squirming newborn. Set to recorded music by Beethoven, Strauss and Copland, each scene is powerful, surprising and one-of-a-kind.

Each vignette is simple and yet, you forget the characters are fabrications, stitched together by a supremely gifted puppet-master. From the performance of the grand old violinist Maestro Zelinka to Johnny Lobotomy’s heavy metal rock guitar frets, each marionette offers a moment to be treasured.
