Farmer Jason

Jason Ringenberg

About the Artist

Farmer Jason is the brainchild of alt-country legend Jason Ringenberg of Jason and The Scorchers. Ringenberg created Farmer Jason in 2003 to entertain his own children. The character’s popularity spread into the concert, record and TV world, winning a 2009 Emmy Award. His interactive family shows involve sing-a-long songs, dancing and discussions of farm life, nature appreciation and ecology.
