The Swingles & Åkervinda

- (Doors: 7 pm)

Cecil Sharp House, London

For more than half a century, The Swingles have pushed the boundaries of vocal music.

The seven singers that make up today’s London-based group are driven by the same innovative spirit that has defined the five-time Grammy® winners since they first made waves in the 1960s. They are thrilled to be returning to Cecil Sharp House for an eclectic evening of vocal magic, encompassing arrangements of traditional music from around the world as well as new original songs inspired by the English folk tradition.

Joining The Swingles are Åkervinda, four singers who breathe new life into traditional Scandinavian folk songs. The group’s name is inspired by a Swedish wildflower whose roots spread far and wide like rivers under the ground. Like the flower, gracefully entwining melodies, rock solid groove, and ever intriguing harmonies will take root in your mind. Like the flower, they will be impossible to remove.
