Sunday, June 17 • Dagmar. The indie-driven duo of Gemma Cohen and Miranda Mallard share new songs and older favorites. 8 p.m. Cafe Paradiso, 101 N. Main St., Fairfield. (641) 472-0856.

Dagmar is an indie classical, harmony driven female duo relocated to the San Francisco Bay Area from their prairie homeland of Fairfield, Iowa. A music project with a history, Gemma Cohen (vocals, bass, percussion ) and Miranda Mallard (vocals, keyboard, guitar) are Dagmar's core.

Gemma and Miranda have been singing together for nearly 13 years—first in the harmony trio, Rock Paper Scissors, and currently in Dagmar. Harmonies continue to be a staple for this duo along with influences ranging from Medieval Choral music to Radiohead. Dagmar’s sound ranges from raw and challenging, strong and dissonant, to delicate and ethereal.

This summer, Dagmar plans to record a second album to be released in 2019. Dagmar will share these new songs, along with older favorites, with their hometown of Fairfield on Father’s Day, June 17, at 8pm at Cafe Paradiso. Tickets are $10-$20 sliding scale and available in advance at Cafe Paradiso.
