BEMIDJI — Folk-rock duo Sway Wild will perform on Wednesday, May 11, at the Chief Theater, 314 Beltrami Ave. NW.
Doors open at 6:30 p.m. with the show starting at 7:30 p.m.
Based in San Juan Island, Wa., this will be Sway Wild's fourth time playing in Bemidji.
The duo is the artistic collaboration between internationally acclaimed indie folk-rockers Mandy Fer and Dave McGraw.
Their exceptional vocal harmonies, coupled with Fer’s pioneering electric guitar work, have become a vehicle to carry them around the world, sharing stages with the likes of Iron & Wine, Lake Street Dive, Gregory Alan Isakov and Mandolin Orange, a release said.
"Sway Wild’s infectious sound explores the corners of rock, pop, funk, worldbeat and folk, but at its nucleus, it is undeniably music full of joy," the release said. "It can squeeze the heart in your chest, it can draw tears from your eyes, and it can force you to get up and move your body; over and over, it somehow manages to do all three at once."
Mandy Fer is also the lead guitarist for Grammy-nominated songwriter Allison Russell and recently performed on Jimmy Kimmell, Ellen DeGeneres with Brandi Carlile hosting, and at the Grammys a few weeks ago.
The event is free to the public, but donations are welcomed and appreciated at the door. There is a GoFundMe page
"Bring SWAY WILD to Bemidji"
for online donations.
