Eschewing his rock career, The Right Rev Swifty has reached
back to the core of the blues and by electrifying rediscovered classic rhythm
and blues. The Right Rev has updated some of the best classic Rhythm & Blues
from both pre and post war blues and brought a hard driving edge to supplement
his stellar Dobro playing. Imagine Elmore James meeting Duanne
Allman at the crossroads with the lyrical sensibility of Woody Guthrie
and of course Dylan!
Swifty’s history is steeped in mythology
“He sold his soul to the devil for his rugged good looks and unparallel guitar playing ability. But Rev kicked the Devil in the case and took his soul back. The Devil who appreciates irony couldn’t stay mad and admitted he should have seen it coming. They now play poker every second Wednesday of the month!"
Check out the review of his opening slot with Colin Blunstone:
‘He really is unique, entertaining & beyond talented -- He tore the house down with a searing and prolific 40 minute set -- He sings, he plays, and he won me over with an engaging, amiable quality rarely seen in someone so gifted -- He made my night as well as a few hundred other folks -- Like if Leon Redbone was a Ramone/traveling minstrel/blues bum ! -- With just a dobro, a bottleneck, a banjo, an amazing character and a searing wit he surprised the lot of us’ - John Masterson Live Music
