2nd Annual The Farmer’s Cow Country Music Showdown

Country Showdown Contest

Six area amateur bands will battle for the title of “Best Country Band in New England” as well as cash prizes. Sponsored by The Farmer’s Cow, this is a toe-tappin’, knee-slappin’ hoedown. Starting at 10am Saturday September 6th, each band will have 30 minutes to show what they’ve got. Bands will play throughout the day, and at 5pm the two finalists will battle it out with encore performances judged by the Nashville duo Kari & Billy.

Bands will be judged on their musicianship, creativity and originality, stage presence and professionalism. Plus they’ll get a chance to earn an extra point for playing their own creative version of The Famer’s Cow jingle!
