The Swingles

  • Hall 1, Kings Place N1 9AG

Folklore

Festival co-hosts and global a cappella phenomenon The Swingles present Folklore – a truly international programme of powerful traditional songs for life’s defining moments. From choral polyphony and soaring ballads to whirling reels and ragas, this contemporary vocal super-group transports audiences to the unique, flawless sound world that sets the five-time Grammy winners apart.

For more than half a century The Swingles have pushed the boundaries of vocal music. The seven young singers that make up today’s London-based group are driven by the same innovative spirit that has defined the group since they first made waves in the 1960s.
