The June and Farrar project has three phases.
Phase 1 is complete! The 7th edition of Living High, June Burn’s unconventional autobiography, is at the printer and will be available through bookstores and Amazon.com in March of 2023!
The first book launch will occur soon at Fairhaven College in Bellingham, WA. Watch this space and join our June & Farrar facebook community page for updates!
Phase 2: Re-record Farrar’s songs with a contemporary vocalist and guitar accompaniment, produce an audio edition of Living High, and promote the book. Auditions for the musician will be held in Bellingham in early 2023. Watch this space for updates. Skye Burn, June & Farrar’s granddaughter, will read the audio recording of Living High.
Phase 3: After Phase 1 and 2 are launched, our intention is to work with co-creators—songwriters, screenwriters, consultants—to create a script for a screenplay or miniseries that tells June & Farrar’s story and utilizes his songs in the storytelling. New songs will be composed to include June’s voice in the musical themes.
We have launched
our first GoFundMe campaign!
It funded the Artistic Director’s position
and kept the work moving forward
to complete Phase 1!
We will soon launch our second fundraiser
to fund the Artistic Director’s position
for Phase 2!

After the co-creators have been fairly compensated, net profits from the June and Farrar Project will support continued family ownership and maintenance of the land that June and Farrar purchased in 1931.
