Internationally-renowned folk singers The Swingles will be at Buxton Opera House Arts Pavillion on March 31.

To celebrate the 55th year of the group’s existence they will be releasing one of their finest albums to date - ‘Folklore’ - a diverse collection where folk meets world music, inspired by their international travels and featuring collaborations with traditional artists. With creative arrangements that transport these well-loved songs into the group’s unique and rich sound world, the results are powerful and surprising.

For more than half a century, The Swingles have pushed the boundaries of vocal music. The seven young singers that make up today’s London-based group are driven by the same innovative spirit that has defined the five-time Grammy winners since they first made waves in the 1960s. At a time when a cappella is more popular than ever, The Swingles are recognised as masters of their craft.
