Sway Wild Presented by Rainshadow Concerts

Tickets are $20 online in advance through www.ticketstorm.com/e/29888/t/ — or $25 cash or check at the door.

On Sunday, August 18, Rainshadow Concerts presents Sway Wild at the Palindrome at 7pm.

San Juan Island, WA-based indie folk-rock duo Mandy Fer and Dave McGraw are back at it with a new sound, and a new name: Sway Wild! Their exceptional vocal harmonies, coupled with Fer’s pioneering electric guitar work, have become a vehicle to carry them around the world, sharing stages with the likes of Iron & Wine, Lake Street Dive, and Watchhouse. Sway Wild’s infectious sound explores the corners of rock, pop, funk, worldbeat, and folk, but at its nucleus it is undeniably a music full of joy. It can squeeze the heart in your chest, it can draw tears from your eyes, and it can force you to get up and move your body; over and over, it somehow manages to do all three at once. Mandy Fer also tours as the lead guitarist for Amos Lee and Allison Russell and has recently performed with Brandi Carlile.

“…(Off-Grid Lo-Fi ) suits their music deep down to the ground and digs its roots even further into your soul…(Fer) is over and again proving herself a brilliant songwriter…Off-Grid Lo-Fi is a truly standout new collection from Dave and Mandy, who must surely by now be considered one of Americana’s most vital and essential – and original – duo acts.”
