Dave McGraw & Mandy Fer Band @ Axe & Fiddle in Cottage Grove, OR
July 21 • 8:00 pm• $10
Internationally-acclaimed indie-folk-rock songwriter duo Mandy Fer & Dave McGraw will be performing at Axe & Fiddle with Thomas Lord on electric bass.
Known as a standout electric guitarist and multi-instrumentalist, Mandy Fer is unafraid to dominate the stage for an extended guitar solo, defying long-held gender barriers for female guitarists. Dave McGraw’s emotional songwriting riffs on natural elements of the world around him. McGraw spent a decade as a wildlife biologist, studying endangered birds in remote locales from the deserts of Mexico and the Grand Canyon to the mountainous rainforests of Washington. McGraw and Fer joined forces in Flagstaff, Arizona in 2010 before relocating to the San Juan Islands in Washington State in 2012.
Together, their exceptional vocal harmonies coupled with Fer’s pioneering electric guitar work have become a vehicle to carry them around the world. The pair has honed their skills touring extensively throughout the US and Europe, sharing stages with such acts as Iron & Wine, Glen Hansard, Gregory Alan Isakov, Birds of Chicago and many others. Winning over audiences anywhere from Alaska to Amsterdam, McGraw and Fer perform a heartfelt and dynamic blend of innovative folk-rock.
