Artist Update: Eggs for Honey

 

McGraw-Fer-Off-Grid-Lo-Fi-FrontOn December 5, 2015, Chestnut House Concerts hosted Dave McGraw and Mandy Fer just over 2 years from their first house concert here in 2013. Mandy and Dave co-write their songs, and as time passes, their music is stronger, the lyrics richer and the harmonies sweeter.

After their show on December 5, Dave and Mandy mentioned that they would be house sitting “off the grid” for friends on a nearly uninhabited island of  Washington State’s San Juan Islands. They would be working on a new album while taking care of some aging donkeys. And, if you were at the house concert that night, you may remember some jokes about Dave being trapped on the island while Mandy learned the banjo.

Eggs for Honey is from their album off-grid low-fi and was featured as song of the day for Folk Radio UK  (FRUK). I can see why – it was posted just 20 minutes ago and I’ve already played it 4 times.  Click the link below to read more about and listen to Eggs for Honey.  http://www.folkradio.co.uk/2016/06/premiere-dave-mcgraw-mandy-fer-eggs-honey/

The album “off-grid lo-fi” will be available on June 24, 2016.

 

Kaia Kater, another female banjo player who writes her own music will be at Chestnut House Concerts on Monday, August 22, 2016.  More on Kaia Kater in upcoming posts.
