Pure Jazz Sessions – Swoon
Combining decades of experience and versatility, Tasmania’s own Allison Farrow, Blythe Tait, and Nicole Simms-Farrow join forces to become Swoon.
Specialising in vintage jazz arrangements with close three-part harmonies, Swoon delights audiences with favourite jazz standards as well as treating modern hits to a makeover from a bygone era. Sweeping across a range of genres from cabaret to classical, Swoon celebrates creativity and diversity, as well as paying tribute to many of the famous ‘Girl groups’ throughout history, from the Andrews Sisters and The Supremes to Destiny’s Child and The Spice Girls.
Hot off the back of their concert appearance at Hobart’s Theatre Royal, Swoon will be joined by some of the best jazz musicians in the state, led by none other than the great Matthew Ives. The ladies of Swoon look forward to making their Devonport Jazz Festival debut, enchanting North West Coast audiences with their polished vocal harmonies, sizzling musical accompaniment and glamour in abundance!
