I am Joy of the Farr family and am interested in getting originals of all 12 albums we made while I was growing up. We don't have any due to floods, theft and time. I put a message out on facebook in search of and someone sent me your site. Do you have just the one or more? I will pay for this and shipping if you are interested. Its a part of my life very important to me

Hello, Joy --

You may not remember me -- my name is Gary Nissley from Pasadena, California. I first met your family in 1971 when you played at Brethren churches in Southern California. I visited your family in Middletown, PA during the Christmas season 1974-1975. I recorded some of your family shows at various churches from Long Beach to Fresno, including Ladera Heights and Pasadena. I would be happy to send you cassette copies of whatever tapes that I still have. As for the records, I still have I'll Walk With God, Clouds of Love, Sparkle and Family Portrait, and maybe more. As with you, this was a part of my life and I want to keep my originals, but I'll be glad to make you copies if you would like. Please say hi to Mark, Nick II, Kurt, Rick, Joel and your folks. I often think about your family and what you're up to these days. You can reach me at my girlfriend's email I do hope to hear from you soon. -- Gary Nissley

I've uploaded a photo of a Farr Family program from a church concert in the early 70s in Wenatchee, WA.

I would love to have a copy of the Farr Family Christmas album. With listened to them at a church in Lancaster, PA when I was a child and bought the album. It has been damaged over the years. This was a very special Christmas album to me. Please let me know if this is possible. Stacy

Joy, my mom has 7 of your albums. I'd be happy to send them to you. Your family visited our church in Louisiana a number of times.
