Tiny Bar Session 030 | Wes Swing Duo

Black Iris presents Tiny Bar Session 030 with the Wes Swing Duo Thursday February 9th. 

Doors | 7:30pm, $10 Cash, Show | 8:00pm

Wes Swing is a singer, cellist, multi-instrumentalist and composer from Virginia. Swing's style of composition draws on classical, folk and alternative rock influences to create a "rich and lilting soundscape” of "beautifully swelling cello-folk." In live performance he loops his cello and violin to create deeply enveloping string sections to which "Swing demonstrates his vocal prowess with delicate intonation," delivering lyrics imbued with poetry.

"Listening to the album became a journey that I found lent itself to a full listen rather than dipping in and out of tracks...Swing demonstrates his vocal prowess with delicate intonation" - Folk Radio UK

"Like a cold fall night pierces a mountain hollow... Swing's voice rings out over his classical cello strings." - Stephanie Garcia, The Hook
