Back Porch Swing

Working from a palette that draws on the timeless sounds of Billie Holiday, Doc Watson and Bill Monroe, Back Porch Swing has formed the foundation of Alberta’s roots music scene for the past 15 years. Jim Malmberg, who fronts the group with his wife Penny, calls the quartet’s blend of western swing, bluegrass, and folk – ”cowjazz”, because of the inspiration they draw from a wide range of musical genres.

Penguin Eggs, Canada’s roots music bible, proclaimed their album Riding “witty, humorously charming lyrics mixed with tasty playing.” Back Porch Swing’s hot licks, tight harmonies and funny lyrics delivered in an ever-changing musical style will surely leave you a fan.
