Internationally-acclaimed indie-folk-rock trio Sway Wild featuring Mandy Fer, Dave McGraw, and Thom Lord will be performing at The Belfry in Sisters, OR.
Known as a standout electric guitarist and multi-instrumentalist, Mandy Fer fills the stage with her strong yet poised guitar solos, defying long-held gender barriers for female guitarists. Dave McGraws 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 Pacific Northwest in 2012.
The duo's 2014 release Maritime charted at #1 on the EuroAmericana Chart for two consecutive months and was praised by The Telegraph for soulful songs, intuitive musicianship, and fine singing. Together, their exceptional vocal harmonies coupled with Fers 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 fellow troubadours including Iron & Wine, Lake Street Dive, Glen Hansard, Gregory Alan Isakov, Mandolin Orange and many others.
