Tim and I were able to take a whirlwind trip to the Pacific Northwest during the last two weeks of August. Tim lived in Portland for many years and we had the opportunity to visit friends and relatives in Oregon, Washington and Victoria BC.
Dave McGraw and Mandy Fer performed at Chestnut House Concerts in November, 2013 and they reside in the San Juan Islands in Northwest Washington. We knew that we would not be able to visit them on this trip as they were busy touring, but it was a sweet surprise to find their Kickstarter announcement of Maritime in my Facebook feed during our trip.
While Tim drove from Tacoma to Port Angeles so we could take the ferry to Victoria, I played Dave and Mandy’s announcement of their Kickstarter project for Maritime. Producer Zach Goheen, drummer Andrew Lauher, and bassist Christopher Merrill (Birds of Chicago) joined Dave and Mandy in a cabin in the San Juan Islands to record Maritime.
Check out their Kickstarter campaign and hear some clips of their new music. We hope to have them back at Chestnut House Concerts in the spring of 2015 so you can hear the new tunes directly from them.
Tonight, September 7, 2014 we host a sold out show with Lindsay Lou and the Flatbellys. September 27, 2014 is a house concert with guitarist Billy Strings and mandolin player Don Julin.
