The New Swan Band is a new project for Liz and me. The Pioneers have got together with David and Jenny Hoffman. who are well known for their involvment in the Red Sea Pedestrians ( a Klezmer band), and the Numguts Bush band. Jenny also plays with The Last Five coins. David and Jenny are the musical directors of The Black Chooks, a community world folk music band started several years ago as a Zig Zag Festival project in Kalamunda. The new band also has Peter harper on double bass together with Tim Gillett who is switching from bass to guitar.
The New Swan Band offers a big band for Bush Dances and a concert band playing originals by David together with material from their combined repetoire of Australian, celtic and world folk music.
The New Swan Band features mandolin, flute,piano accordian,double bass and acoustic and electric guitar. We played for two bush dances at the Fairbridge Festival 2018. Each dance had a full capacity of dancers and they really rocked. It was great to see so many young people enjoying the bush dancing.
