Oliver Swain Live in Concert

  • IMA Public Gallery 2323 Pooley Street Wells, BC, V0K 2R0 Canada

Hailing from Victoria, BC, nearly the farthest west (or left) one can be, Oliver Swain is Canada’s quintessential folk and traditional musician.  He eats, sleeps and breathes music, and his prolific career evidences this in many ways.  With his pure, finely tuned vocals that have an astonishing range, and his undeniable skill behind a banjo or upright bass, Oliver grabs the attention of all who hear him, and holds it with his enormous sound and stature.  From the most vulnerable and innocent sounding banjo ditties to the brave and imposing bowed bass, Oliver delivers his own brand of alternative folk and traditional music to the masses with a smile and a twinkle in his eye.
