A category-defying musical entity, FAUN FABLES is DAWN McCARTHY's vivid imagination come to life in song and theater. It has been attracting a devoted and eclectic following since 1997- with numerous performances throughout the North American Continent, Europe, Israel, Australia, New Zealand and Iceland and with four record releases made available worldwide on DRAG CITY RECORDS.
Dawn is a composer, singer and theater artist whose work is a sea of gorgeous elemental nitty gritty; haunting melodies, breath, stomping, and natural theatricality led by the voice, rooted in the physical body. It is a crossroads where ancient ballad, art song, physical theater and rock music meet.
Her lyrics speak to people of all ages about things like rugged housekeeping, street kids, growing old, sleepwalking and exiled travelers returning home.
Dawn founded FAUN FABLES in 1997 to explore human pathos amid the animate earth with musical & physical storytelling forms. Her current FAUN FABLES ensemble includes violinist MEREDITH YAYANOS and multi-instrumentalist KIRANA PEYTON, with appearances by long time collaborator NILS FRYKDAHL of Sleepytime Gorilla Museum.
