Back Porch Swing plays a blend of swing, traditional, and original songs and tunes. Voices in tight harmony are complimented by the fiddling of Josie Solseng, the fine mandolin picking of Neal Woodall, the versatile guitar of Greg Starling and the bass and whistles of Riley McLaughlin.
The band has performed around the northwest since 1991 and has played at festivals including Northwest Folklife, the Tumbleweed Music Festival and the Juan De Fuca Festival.
Back Porch Swing has released
three CDs – Snapshot, Running for the Ferry and Amaryllis
As good as they are at performing swing music from the thirties and forties, and as much fun as they have with novelty songs like I Want to be a Cowgirl, they equal that level in the tunes the band members write in the Celtic vein....Olympia is a better place due to the presence of Back Porch Swing.
