The Swingles: LIVE
The Swingles are one of the world’s most admired and loved vocal groups. With a natural flair as entertainers, their stylish shows take them to venues and festival stages across the world. They have earned 5 Grammy Awards and are recipients of prestigious international accolades year-on-year. With generations of fans from their live performances and appearances on film and TV soundtracks, The Swingles’ musical evolution and creative drive makes them as relevant today as when Ward Swingle started the group nearly six decades ago.
With their trademark vocal dexterity, The Swingles leap from genre to genre, reinventing jazz, classical, folk, pop and world music from their ever-growing repertoire of arrangements alongside a rich vein of new original material. The group’s secret ingredient is the ability of the seven singers, soloists, songwriters and storytellers to combine as one seamlessly blended and timeless sound. Having always made creative use of close-mic amplification, in recent years The Swingles have added live audio looping to their stage performances.
Line-up: Mallika Bhagwat, Joanna Goldsmith-Eteson, Imogen Parry, Oliver Griffiths, Jon Smith, Jamie Wright, Tom Hartley
