Faun Fables ready their enchanted forest stagecoach for spritely spring tour

The melodious forest elves behind Faun Fables have packed their tiny guitars in tiny magical seed pod cases and hitched their wisest rabbits to a tiny, enchanted stagecoach, which can only mean one thing: the Oakland-based duo are ready for a spring tour! Sylvan creatures Dawn McCarthy and Nils Frykdahl have shoved two kids (their own) and a nanny along with them in their tiny, enchanted stagecoach and the whole family’s literally taking the show on the road, traveling to venues across the US and the part of Canada everybody goes to. (Sorry, Saskatchewan, maybe next time.) Their last album, Light of a Vaster Dark (TMT Review), was released on Drag City back in 2010, so maybe there’s some new material on the way.

Then, later this summer, head faun Dawn McCarthy will be striking out on tour with Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy in support of their most recent release together, What the Brothers Sang. Released earlier this year, the album is a collection of covers of Everly Brothers tunes. The McCarthy/Billy tour sees the duo journeying up to Alaska and the Yukon Territories (!!!!!!) before dipping back down to the lower 48.
