Oliver Swain on the Coast!

by Deanna Knight on April 11, 2019

Oliver and I met at the Victoria Django festival a few years ago. He is the artistic director and a fabulous talent with a passion for all kinds of music. His vocal tone is something to be experienced and his passionate performance always gets me right in the heart.

We will share a night together at a house concert in Gibsons with limited seating so please purchase your tickets in advance. You can email me directly info@deannaknight.ca  or call 604 362 1280. I am always so grateful when folks step up and commit early as it relieves so much stress on our end. This promises to be a night of songs and stories that will surprise and delight.

Help us spread the word by sharing this FB event listing and invite your friends and family! Here we are last time – can’t wait to see how it all unfolds a second time around :)

Oliver Swain
www.oliverswain.com
Oliver Swain has been a celebrated musician for years, held in high regard in acoustic and folk music styles for both his astonishing instrumental and vocal abilities, though he seldom gives the genre a fully traditional treatment. Oliver Swain strays towards the whimsical, the spiritual, and the socially conscious side of what he likes to refer to as “chamber folk odyssey”, and it’s these beguiling and provocative elements that make him unique as an artist and songwriter. Devon Leger even called him “The Zen Rock Garden of old time music” No Depression “This is genre defying at it’s best… beautifully played and performed, each song a mini masterpiece.” — Paul Jackson, Fatea magazine UK

Return to April in Paris – Djangofest

by Deanna Knight on April 11, 2019

Celebrating our return to this wonderful annual festival showcasing the roots of what we do. Gyspy-jazz and Django Reinhardt’s music has carried my main project for over 18 yrs. The Hot Club of Mars has kept me busy and on stage for close to 2 decades and I still LOVE what we do. The music is fun and uplifting. If it doesn’t get your toes tapping or better yet, get you up out of your seat on to the dance floor…then you might what to have that checked  ;)

Tradition would have me produce a cabaret at this festival but this year I had too much on my plate and I’m learning to say no from time to time. I will however showcase a new friend Devora Laye on washboard and saw…..yup….saw. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to witness the sweet sounds of this old timey showstopper alongside some of our most beloved songs.

The festival is 3 days of talent in Kitsilano at St. James Hall.
Tickets are on sale now HERE

We plan to hit the stage around 2:30 for a couple sets. This show is by donation so please bring real money :)  Be mindful that there is no room for dancing at this venue.  The Legion will be a fabulous room to shake it up! Hope to see ya!
