Faun Fables with Joshua Songs
$8 at the door
After fifteen years of collaboration, twelve years of touring and six full-length albums, Oakland's FAUN FABLES (Dawn McCarthy and Nils Frykdahl of Sleepytime Gorilla Museum) are known for exquisite, visceral adventures in song & theater and riveting live erformances to eclectic and devoted audiences throughout the world. Faun Fables vocals ride through solid, elemental structures of guitars and percussion like Valkyries. All manner of flutes dance through the arrangements. Characters and narration arise at times, occasionally in the form of a full theater show.
Dawn gets singing inspiration from the likes of Catherine Ribeiro, Mariana Sadowska, Lole Montoya, Demis Roussos, Roky Erickson, and now draws much inspiration as a mama witch; tending her two girl children Edda and Ura. Hearth & home life remains an obsession but with Nils and the girls, the gypsy family life has been hers to savor. Dawn is also currently touring with Bonnie Prince Billy in support of their new album.
