Folk at the New Room presents Jon Swayne & Becky Price

About

English dance and song melodies from various collections led by Jon's border pipes over Becky's muted chords and traditional folk harmonies.

Jon Swayne and Becky Price began playing together over ten years ago. They quickly discovered a close musical rapport which led to two threads of musical exploration – the rich repertoire of English dance music from the 17th and 18th centuries and the writing of new tunes for traditional dances from central France.

Jon combines pipe-making with performance and composition. A founder member of Blowzabella, he also created the bagpipe trio Moebius and the seven-piece bagpipe band Zephyrus.

Becky founded French dance trio Finality Jack in the 1990s and Boldwood in 2003 and has worked with fiddle player Dave Shepherd, hurdy-gurdy player Nigel Eaton and accordion trio Hell Said the Duchess (with Karen Tweed and Hannah James). She is a regular guest tutor for the National Youth Folk Ensemble.

Jon and Becky present a highly varied programme of English dances, airs and song-tunes of the last 400 years, alongside dance tunes of Jon's, many of which have become classics of the genre.
