Internationally acclaimed San Juan Island Americana folk duo to perform at Lopez Center. In July, Mandy Fer made her Lopez Center debut, joining Sean Hayes on the pavilion stage. She returns with Dave McGraw and long-time collaborator Thom Lord at 7 p.m. on Sunday, April 22, at Lopez Center.

McGraw and Fer’s album “Maritime” charted at No. 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 Fer’s pioneering electric guitar work have become a vehicle to carry them around the world. The pair has honed their skills touring extensively throughout the United States and Europe, sharing stages with fellow troubadours including Iron & Wine, Glen Hansard, Gregory Alan Isakov, Kelly Joe Phelps, Birds of Chicago and many others.

Winning over audiences anywhere from Alaska to Amsterdam, McGraw and Fer are harnessing much more than just the sun and wind with the worldwide release of their new album, “Off-Grid Lo-Fi,” recorded entirely with solar and wind powered electricity.

Tickets are adults, $15 and youth, $8. They are available from Paper Scissors on the Rock, Lopez Bookshop, Pachamama Apothecary and online at lopezcenter.org.

Their next stop after Lopez Center? A concert in Itterbeck, Germany!
