An evening of Bluegrass and Americana

Award winning roots artist Oliver Swain has as 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“. www.oliverswain.com

Jenny Lester’s voice is known throughout North American Bluegrass circles for its beautiful tone and delivery. With a long career as a Multi-Instrumentalist, Singer, Songwriter and Educator, Jenny will be contributing original material that blends seamlessly with the old classics in the mountain traditions. www.jennylester.com

Ivonne Hernandez was a child fiddling prodigy who has gone on to become Victoria’s most decorated acoustic musician. The 2017 Juno Award winner has received two Western Canada Music Awards, Two Canadian Folk Music Awards and Five Grand North American Fiddling Championships. Ivonne represents the best of a new generation of Canadian fiddling talent. www.ivonnehernandez.com
