Pub Hang w/ KEN SWARTZ
Thur DEC 13 @ 7:30pm

Ken Swartz, from New Orleans

There  may be no single person better in New Orleans at smiling away the blues  than Ken Swartz : weather it be Peidmont , East Coast , or Country  Blues ,Ken likes to keep things whimsical and upbeat…..Robert Fontenot  (Offbeat Magazine) April 2017    

What sets Ken Swartz apart is the concept of doing Mississippi John Hurt and Washington Phillips material… without it becoming blues-rock. Of Phillips’ “Denomination Blues” Swartz writes,”Played this first on mandolin,but over time I began playing it on guitar; the band eventually gave it that funky NOLA style”.
