The Ian McFeron Band will appear at the Lopez Grange on Friday, June 7 at 7:30 p.m. in the next of the Home on the Grange concert series sponsored by radiofreelopez.com.

The Ian McFeron Band exploded onto the Seattle music scene shortly after releasing their debut album, Don’t Look Back (2003). A prolific songwriter whose lyrical prose and fervent work ethic has drawn comparisons to Bob Dylan and Ryan Adams, McFeron has released a steady stream of albums. In live performance, McFeron is joined by the Texas fiddle of Alisa Milner and the backbeat rhythms of Todd VanSelus and Mark Bateman.

The band has also performed with well-known Northwest lead-guitar players such as Alice Stuart and Rod Cook, and with slide-guitar virtuoso Dan Tyack. The diverse musicianship of its members allows the Ian McFeron Band to shift smoothly through a variety of roots-Americana styles, ranging from acoustic folk rock to gritty alt-country blues, from heartfelt, soulful ballads to driving, danceable backbeat groves.

“The Ian McFeron Band plays an earthy yet sophisticated blend of folk, rock, alternative-country and blues that belies the band’s youthfulness,” said Gene Stout of the Seattle P-I.

Tickets are $10 at the door.
