The Faraway Eyes

Performance Times

3pm, Sunday
Tantric Turtle


The Faraway Eyes are a fresh slice of Americana pie featuring the angelic harmonies of Deanne Dale, Heather Johnstone and Meredith Osborne.

They are ably accompanied by nifty finger-pickin' guitar player Paul (Buck) Buckberry, and Acoustic Shock mandolinist Nigel Lever laying the solid musical foundations. Their repertoire is a unique blend of folk, country and blues songs either written or interpreted by their co-founders Buck & Deanne, on topics ranging from the gravitas of September 11 to a trans-gender love song done in a Johnny Cash style.

“The Faraway Eyes were born to write songs that you’d want to hear on your car stereo as you hit the road.” – Brent McKean, Revolver.
