Swing Noire performs at Brandon Music

Swing Noire performs at Brandon Music

Vermont’s hottest Hot Club style quartet, Swing Noire, makes music that “will entrance and surprise you.” Great energy, soul, sophistication, and improvisation are the hallmarks of a Swing Noire performance.

Some call it Gypsy Jazz, some Hot Swing; in either case it is acoustic music in the spirit of Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli. Swing Noire invokes the energy of a swingin’ jazz club, transporting audiences back to the early days of jazz with their unique take on Hot Swing. “The Reinhardt acolytes genuinely channel American Hot Jazz, evoking images of smoky basement speakeasies and slinky cabarets”, says Dan Bolles of Seven Days.

Saturday, August 12 at 7:30pm

Folk singer Alex Smith builds songs from stories that are neither contrived nor romanticized – simply keenly observed and honestly told. Smith sings with a rich baritone often compared to Stan Rogers and Gordon Lightfoot, and his characters live and breathe a balance between beauty and imperfection.

He has been touring nationwide since 2009, and was awarded an NTCMA Award for his 2013 release ‘Hamilton County’. Chris Wienk of 97.7 WEXT (Albany, NY) says: “Alex Smith brings a fresh look and sound to an old art form, presenting the folk song to the 21st Century listener with captivating original songs that feel both old and new at the same time”
