Join the Olympia Downtown Alliance at Music in the Park on July 10 from 1 pm to 2 pm at Sylvester Park, 615 Washington St SE, Olympia, WA 98501, for the second 2022 Music in the Park Concert featuring Ian McFeron. This is a FREE concert series thanks to our incredible sponsors.
Ian McFeron got his start performing for dock workers and fishermen in the Irish pubs and dive bars along Shilshole Bay in the Ballard neighborhood of Seattle, WA.
When the single from his debut album, Don’t Look Back was picked up by famed Seattle radio station KMTT 103.7 “The Mountain”, McFeron found himself on a larger stage, performing with international artists like Patty Griffin, Sister Hazel, Shawn Mullins, Brandi Carlile, Mike Doughty, Amos Lee, and Hayes Carll.
Early success in Seattle drew McFeron into a full-time recording and touring career. He would spend the next decade performing throughout the United States, growing a national audience and attracting media attention stretching across the Atlantic.
A compulsive writer whose songwriting has drawn comparisons to John Lennon, Tom Petty, Bob Dylan and David Gray, McFeron followed up his debut album with eight LP’s in the next twelve years. Currently, he performs in support of his 10th studio album, West Wind, recorded with Grammy-nominated producer and guitarist Doug Lancio (Bob Dylan, Tom Jones, Steve Earle, John Hiatt, Patty Griffin).
“Soaked in California sunshine one minute, then deep in the dustbowl the next, it’s like a greatest hits of everyone you like.”
