My name is Kevin Farmer, and I'm a professional drummer with over 20 years of playing experience. I was a member of The Compound for over 10 years and currently I am a touring member of Mountain Head as well as working on various studio projects.
I've been participating in the Parkinson Superwalk since 2009 supporting my father has been living with the disease for many years now. My dad received deep brain stimulation surgery which helps control some symptoms, but also causes some side effects. There is currently no cure for parkinson's.
This year due to covid-19, things have changed since we cannot have large gatherings of people, so I decided to try something a little different which turned out to be "Drums For Parkinson's." Please support me and Parkinson Canada by donating today.
