Faun Fables announce summer tour, hope to recreate the Shire scenes from The Fellowship of the Ring
"How silver-sweet sound lovers' tongues by night, like softest music to attending ears!"

Sound the pan flute! Dust off your field-frolicking gear! Prepare your tiny homes for transport! Because the fantastic psych-folk family known as Faun Fables are set to storm the mythical woods of the Midwest, the rolling hills of the Pacific Northwest, the yawning deserts of California, and the fertile fields of the South—a.k.a., you know: a bunch of small clubs and dive bars—on their triumphant 2017 summer tour!

For the uninitiated looking to align their energies with the band at any of their upcoming stops, “prepare thyselves for a night of bewitching sounds, song, dance and mythical storytelling” at venues with such quaint, pastoral names as “The Starry Plough.” It’s enough to make you want a mug of sustainably-sourced mead and a quadrille with the shepherd’s daughter.

The band is hitting basically every corner of the U.S. on the extended trek, which follows the release of their 2016 album Born of the Sun. You’ll have plenty of time to practice your vocal harmonies, though, because the droll fun doesn’t begin until the June 10 show in Claremont, CA.

So with all that said, prepare yourself to swoon like this magical pixie-child does in the live video below. Then, gaze whimsically at the full set of dates down below that and be merry! For soon…we dance!
