Live Music – The Schwings
July 21 at 7:00 pm 9:00 pmFree
As part of Sandwell Libraries Jazz Festival, The Schwings will be performing at Timblemill Library at a free event.
The Schwings are a vintage swing and New Orleans style jazz band hailing from the capital of Lithuania, Vilnius. Founded in 2011 by legendary jazz musician and multi-instrumentalist Remis Rančys, The Schwings rapidly rose to popularity in Lithuanian jazz festivals, clubs and lindy hop dance events. Initially the band played golden standards of swing, Brazilian, and gypsy jazz, but has since begun recording original compositions.
Their most recent album Teisutis (March 2019) reached the #1 bestseller in swing/jazz category on Bandcamp – a popular online music distributor. Now performing internationally, they have ‘schwung’ their Lithuanian spirit across the UK, Switzerland, Germany, Spain, Poland, Estonia, Finland and Russia.
The Schwings are joined by singer Migloko, also from Vilnius, who has gradually built on the remarkable impact of her debut as a very young performer 10 years ago.
Free tickets are available in advance online, telephone: 0121 569 4911 and across Sandwell Libraries.
