I attend a concert at Swallowhill on average, 6-10 times a year, even though I live on the other side of town. If I lived closer, I would be there 2-3 times a month. If you like folk/americana music, you can't go wrong. My wife and I constantly comment on the high quality of the entertainment we get to see there. Ticket prices are reasonable. Get on their mailing list so you can see upcoming concerts and mark your calendar. I have also taken a drum class through their music school and had a great time. I have two friends who have been taking banjo lessons and are pleased with their experience.

From Our Website

Engaging musical experiences in assembly settings (25 to 300 audience members at a time) through songs, stories and a variety of instruments. Jazz is one of few truly American art forms. A fusion of European and African music traditions, jazz is often an understated influence in our culture and is unique to the American experience. This program brings students an interactive, entertaining introduction to jazz - how jazz influenced the culture and history of the United States. This assembly examines the ways in which cultural traditions combine to form something new.
