Swampgrass play the mighty blues. It’s the dancing, drinking, up all night partying blues. Sure, there’s a slow song occasionally (no promises) but generally the shows start at pace and stay there. Following the release of their debut album – One Eye Open – in March 2016 the band completed their first tour in late Summer 2016. Spring 2017 saw the band embark on their second national tour, travelling to North Yorkshire, Wales, the South Coast and points in between.
Based in Glastonbury, the heart of Somersetshire, Swampgrass are: Sharon Honeywell – Vocals; Brad Lister – Guitar; Dru Franks – Drums; Andy Barnett – Bass; Reviews of our debut cd “One Eye Open”
