We are FarAway, an acoustic duo comprised of singer/songwriters Sara Davenport and Brian Franke in the metropolitan Washington, DC area. Since 2013 we have played a range of over 30 private events from weddings to corporate events, holiday parties, and birthdays in addition to our regular schedule of public performances at VA wineries, festivals, bars and other venues. Depending on your vision for your event, we will customize the music to what you'd like. While we do have an expansive list of over 400 songs you can choose from (ranging from rock, pop, and folk), we can also learn new material as well. Additionally we are able to add other instruments such as a drummer and violinist.
For weddings we can work with you as closely as you'd like or just through email. We are married, so we understand how stressful it becomes. If you have a wedding coordinator and venue, we'll also work with them on the logistics of arrival, setting up the sound system, and any other coordination you may have. We also offer, if you want, to meet in person as often as you'd like and have found this to be beneficial to couples as they plan the music portion. Additionally we make time before your wedding to go over all the material so that everything sound great and goes smoothly on your wedding day.
Our rates are based on such factors such as how long we're playing for, the logistics for setting up sound equipment, the amount of preparation time before hand, and any time we spend meeting with you, and seeing the venue. Once we have a solid idea of how your event day will go with the music we will happily provide you a quote.
Our goal is to make your event easy to plan with music and memorable for all your guests.

Must book this OUTSTANDING musical couple!
Sara and Brian are amazing! They communicated with us every step of the way. Even when I ran into some family problems and was MIA for the two weeks leading up to my wedding they were so supportive and stayed on top of things. The weather was questionable for my wedding ceremony and it was a last minute decision to stay outside and they rocked it! My guests had nothing but outstanding things to say about them. If they weren't our friends we would have had them do the reception as well but I wanted to hang with them.

Wonderful to work with and very talented!
Wonderful to work with and very talented! Brian was a pleasure to work with. He helped us choose songs for our ceremony and cocktail hour which really gave our wedding a personable feeling. Our friends and family loved hearing a live musician. Thank you Brian for making our special day very memorable!!
