Magic Monday With The Swamp Stomp String Band + Ed Hopwood

This Monday at Jamboree, a night of Swing, Blues, Ragtime, Country and Folk with The Swamp Stomp String Band and Ed Hopwood <3 The Swamp Stomp String Band are not your average Americana band. Twangy Banjos, driving Guitars and a thudding Double Bass sit behind anything from drinking songs that’l have the room stomping there feet and shooting tequila to ballads that’l break even the most toughest folks, to ragtime songs of bar fights and gambling. The London based duo can often be found busking by the side of Thames in the day and performing in any haunt from high end cocktails joints to dimly lit Irish bars at night. Taking a mixture of Jazz, Country, Swing, Blues and Ragtime – it is safe to say there music is there to be enjoyed by people young and old, rich or poor, or who just love to stamp there feet and have a ho-down.” Ed Hopwood is a popular folk player whose schedule has recently taken him on tours of Sweden, Switzerland and Ireland. In 2015 Ed played a sell-out headline show at Celtic Connections, one of the worlds biggest Roots music festivals, and last year he entertained crowds at Festival no.6. “Hopwood in paticular has a gift for playing minimally yet utterly musically at the same time” – Blues Blast Magazine
