It's both the end of an era and a new beginning for Darryl "Farmer" Henry. After 33 years of being on stage with Machel Montano, the Trinbagonian singer/songwriter/performer is now embarking on his first European Tour as a solo artiste, with his first stop in London on May 15th. His tour will then take him to Berlin, Copenhagen, Stockholm and Amsterdam.
It is because of his musical consistency throughout his career, becoming a solo act during Carnival 2015 allowed Farmer to refocus his energies. The recent spin on his career reinforced his love for "the band life" and fuelled his idea to create his own band; Farmer Nappy & De Red Boyz. For Farmer, the undeniable talents of De Red Boyz coupled with his is a perfect musical marriage whether in studio or on stage. De Red Boyz over the past eight years have been responsible for the production of a number of Farmer's hit singles such as 'Chippin', 'Stranger', 'Big People Party', 'Flirt', 'Surrender' and 'My House.'
Farmer Nappy & De Red Boyz, the four-piece band will consist of Bass, Drums, Keys and Guitar along with vocal accompaniment from Bajan songstress Imani. With passion, amazing musicianship and undeniable talent, Farmer and his team have their eyes on accomplishing major goals in the future.
