DRMWPN "The band, if that’s what it is, does just one thing: perform a single piece of music that rises and descends like a wave." (Underground Bee) For this event they will be playing with guest vocalist Haley Fohr.
Faun Fables
Faun Fables
Faun Fables are time-travelers from another era, somehow more aligned with the power and allure of Earth than is usual in our day and age. Turning heads and ears since 1998, they’ve spent a good part of the last few decades touring North America and Europe, with time in Israel, Australia and New Zealand. Their latest album, Born of the Sun, (2016) is their seventh release on DRAG CITY RECORDS, and fairly bursts at the seams with colors and shades all their own. DAWN McCARTHY’s voice, which The New Yorker described as “one of the more compelling instruments in contemporary music," can open hearts and minds with a whisper to a rallying battle cry into her mythical world, animated by the experimental musicality of her partner NILS FRYKDAHL (Free Salamander Exhibit, Sleepytime Gorilla Museum) with his electric guitars, bass, flutes, and rich, weathered vocals. When not traveling together as a family, they raise their three daughters in Sonoma County, California.
