Celebrating the last of summer, Woodwalk Concert Series presents Pacific Northwest-based songwriter duo Dave McGraw & Mandy Fer on Sept. 2. This duo voyages even further out to sea on their latest self-produced/recorded release Off-Grid Lo Fi. Recorded entirely with solar and wind powered electricity on a nearly uninhabited, remote, off-grid island in northwest Washington state, McGraw and Fer have ventured into new territory, both geographically and artistically.
Known as a standout electric guitarist and multi-instrumentalist, Fer is unafraid to dominate the stage for an extended guitar solo, defying long-held gender barriers for female guitarists. McGraw’s emotional songwriting riffs on natural elements of the world around him are rooted in his island surroundings and the decade spent as a wildlife biologist, studying endangered birds in remote locales. McGraw and Fer joined forces in Flagstaff, Arizona in 2010 before relocating to the Pacific Northwest in 2012.
